“Your spirit is the true shield.” 

–  Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido

Aikido is a non-competitive Japanese martial art that uses the energy of the attack and circles it back onto the attacker. It does not rely on strength or body size to be effective. Aikido Shugyo Dojo is a non-profit Aikido club that has been a centre for Aikido training in Toronto’s east end since 1985. Our Dojo teaches both open-handed and Aikido weapons techniques to adults and children.
