Aikido is known as “The Art of Peace”


Traditional Yoshinkan Aikido training stresses strong posture, basic movements and techniques specifically designed to develop perfect balance, body center line, and focus of breath power, while timing and speed are added to achieve powerful techniques with minimal strength.


“Aikido is the physical expression of non-violence.”

-Shihan Jacques Payet

Why Aikido?

Our adult Aikido classes offer a complete, holistic development program, if your primary goals include stress reduction, relaxation, optimal health and well-being, improved fitness, longevity, weight control, greater self-awareness, refinement of martial arts skills, better balance and coordination, and true peace of mind.

Aikido Network welcomes anyone who loves to move, play, learn and improve. Our program is NOT focused on developing fighters or competitors, it is about becoming balanced and powerful in your life through your movement, your thoughts and your actions. This means that you will learn proper body mechanics, practical self-defense, what it means to have the mechanical advantage, and personal development, but with an emphasis on a modern world application of these skill sets. It is a true evolution of movement that must be experienced to be understood. If you are interested in exploring the potential of your self, in new and inspired ways, the Aikido Network is the place for you.

It is our passion that inspires our students to become enthusiastic about achieving self-mastery in their own life.

In Aikido, the focus is on developing each individual as a whole. Taking a scientific approach to the mind/body connection, Aikido has helped thousands of people see that they have the choice to live abundant, powerful and healthy lives. As you progress in belt rank you will build upon the base knowledge you have learned from the previous levels.

Yoshinkan Aikido has a simple way of demonstrating how to take someone’s balance and take the offender’s energy and use it against them. These strategies are used to take the opponent down and then secure them to the ground with a pin, joint lock or a choke, ending in a submission. This puts the defender in a superior position for negotiating. Yoshinkan Aikido also incorporates the spirit of the samurai, in the ways of being mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually prepared for battle. The calmness, breathing, relaxing, and centering techniques help us deal with stress and conflict and are invaluable to our lives today.

Yoshinkan Aikido techniques remind us about the importance of human preservation and the value of life. This teaches us to perform, and defend an attack with ethical responsibility. We realize that we don’t take it personally, but we must protect ourselves and our families with “tactical benevolence”, which means bringing a confrontation to an end without violence. Aikido teaches this for a better quality of life.

By offering tools that improve health and generate positive behaviors, Aikido Network eases the transition of teenage life. The technical skills taught are rooted in traditional Yoshinkan Aikido, blending effective self-defense with more pliable techniques creating valuable lifelong skills.

The respectful class etiquette promotes a class setting where respect, kindness and acceptance merge into a supportive peer culture. Students gradually progress from white belt to black belt, by achieving goals and setting higher standards for success.
