Aiki no Michi Aikidojo was established in 1997. We changed our name to Pure Aikido as many found our previous name confusing. The goals of this dojo continue to be excellence, the faithful preservation of the founder’s techniques; spiritual growth and self defense. The focus is on regular training.
In our dojo a person is assessed on their actions not their words. In our daily practice we strive for the perfection of our technique and self improvement through regular training, some of the typical benefits being bravery, compassion, self awareness, mind control, self discipline, and spiritual insight and self defense ability. All non-Dan ranks wear a white belt and the point is regularly reinforced that rank does not make the person.
