A fit active child is a happy child. At West Coast Aikido we pride ourselves on teaching a balanced curriculum. What does that mean? It means giving equal attention to all facets of learning, balancing the instruction between what the body needs (active activity that pushes the heart rate up); the mind (challenging students to use their mind to problem solve) and the spirit (going internal to develop a never give up attitude). When we push the body and challenge the mind the spirit will naturally develop.

Dojo looking fantastic. So very lucky to have a venue like this to pass on my passion to others. It was always an ambition of mine to have a place of my own where I could teach my art unhindered by restraints. 26 years teaching Aikido, the last 12 years in my own dedicated facility and teaching professionally for the past 7 years. Even though it hasn't been all smooth sailing, with all the issues that come with running a business and a full- time school, I dont regret anything I have done. Yes I have made mistakes and I am sure I have offended or disappointed some people, but I know in my heart that whatever I have done I have done because I am passionate about my art, teaching and running a successful small (more like micro) business. I know that what we teach @ west coast Aikido has helped so many people improve their lives and I want to continue to help others achieve those same positive results. To our members, I thank you for your support. Dom arigato gozaimasu. 🙏
