Aikido is a study in harmony based on the martial arts of the Samurai and Japanese traditions. Aikido promotes cooperation instead of conflict, training the mind by practicing physical techniques. The skills we teach and study are directly applicable to daily life outside the dojo, as we work to create harmony in our relationships with our friends, family, coworkers, and society in general. Aikido is both a physical and mental challenge with immense benefits to both physical and mental health.
Aikido Byōdōkai Community of Minnesota offers classes for youth and adults at the Kobukan Dojo, starting from age 7. We are a completely volunteer-run organization, from our instructors to our Board of Directors. All donations and monthly dues go toward operating expenses and our Youth Scholarships for youth students with a financial need who wish to study Aikido. Visit www.aikidomn.org for more information.
