Aikido Mountain West welcomes any student of Budo, regardless of organization or affiliation. Come train.
What is Aikido? Let us tell you about it.
What is Aikido?
Aikido is a Japanese martial art that focuses on ethical conflict resolution. Founded by Ueshiba, Morihei, aikido employs sweeping circular movements, joint manipulation, pressure points, sweeps, and throws; all in an effort to blend with the attacker's energy and leading it towards de-escalation. Aikido develops a calm and joyous spirit and promotes a host of health and wellness benefits.
What is Iaido?
Iaido is the art of traditional Japanese sword drawing. Originally the art of the quick-draw, iaido evolved into a form of moving meditation during Japan's renaissance. Known for its beauty, grace, and deadly efficiency, iaido develops a sense of focus and tranquility within its practitioners.
Aikido Mountain West was founded by a community of teachers who are passionate about developing a dojo where people feel connected, appreciated, and part of the family. Training at AMW will bring you joy as well as a host of health and wellness benefits.
Great news! In addition to our regular classes, we now offer private, custom Aikido & Self-Defense classes just for you! (adults only)
