Since our beginning, we have transmitted the teachings of Aikido to more than a thousand individuals, young and old. Dozens of members have achieved a black belt rank, recognized by the Aikido World Headquarters in Japan. Many more, with years of training, have developed the inner calm, security and confidence which characterize those adept in the art of Aikido. All have improved their physical abilities through practice.
Our dojo sponsors multiple seminars each year with guests sensei from many other places. These events connect members with senior instructors and with visiting participants from Japan, the U.S. mainland, Europe, etc. as well as many other Hawaii dojos.
