REMINDER: Aikido of Northwest Kansas will not have regular classes this Friday September 12th through Sunday, September 14th; instead, we encourage everyone to come to the free seminar taught by our Association's President, Toyoda Sensei. The 2014 Toyoda-Sensei Seminar Schedule can be found on the drop-down menu under our master schedule below. Thanks, and we hope to see you there!

Traditional Aikido Classes

Aikido is a self-defensive Japanese martial art that uses an attacker's energy against them. Aikido students most commonly seek to neutralize their attackers with wrist-locks, throws, joint manipulations, chokes, and pins.

Weapons Class

Part of Aikido involves training in traditional weapons: jo staff, bokken (wooden sword), and tanto (wooden knife). We cover weapon on weapon work, katas, weapon disarmament, and more!

Youth & Family

Throwing your 5-year-old over your shoulder is fun, but when she throws you over her shoulder, it's something else entirely! Come join us for a fun, active (and safe!) activity for the whole family!

Additional Opportunities

Separate from our traditional, religiously neutral Aikido classes, our dojo offers early church prayer meditation classes and an Aikido Connections class for those who may be interested. These classes are free to any adult or youth Aikido member, or they can be taken separately.
