[02/11/17]   Kids/teens: regular classes tomorrow. See you on the mat!

[02/03/17]   Tendoryu classes are cancelled from Sunday 2/5 through Friday 2/10 while Nat is out of town.

[01/31/17]   In these stressful and increasingly uncertain times, we at Seattle School of Aikido would like to reiterate that we are a welcoming and friendly space to persons of all ethnicities, countries of origin, genders, sexual orientations, and religious beliefs. Martial arts can offer a special opportunity to really get to know other people in our community. We offer our own bodies to our training partners so that they may further their own training, and in doing so have a shared opportunity to develop trust in and empathy for others.

Train joyfully!
