Welcome to Aikido Sydney City!
Aikido Sydney City is a beautiful, full-time dojo in inner-city Sydney, offering classes for children, teenagers and adults in the non-violent Japanese martial art of Aikido, ‘The Art of Peace’. We belong to a worldwide network of Aikido dojos inspired by the teachings of Yoshinobu Takeda Shihan, and known as Aikido Kenkyukai International (AKI).
The name ‘kenkyukai’ means ‘research group’, and is indicative of our joyful, innovative and creative approach to Aikido study. Sensitivity, softness, connection with our partners, and freedom in movement are signature themes of our classes.
At Aikido Sydney City, we recognise that every student is unique. We each have different bodies, abilities and interests, and as artists – martial artists – our Aikido, too, should be our own. Hence, in conjuction with our internationally recognised technical syllabus, we provide you with the tools and opportunities to discover your own natural way of moving, and to develop your own unique expression of this incredible and inspiring art!
