About us


For over 40 (forty) years, AIKIDO LOS ANGELES (the aikido program at Aikido Los Angeles) has offered training in the traditional Japanese budo (martial way) of Aikido to the people of Los Angeles, Burbank,Van Nuys and the greater San Fernando Valley, to foster the growth of dojo members into strong, confident individuals who are at peace with themselves and the world around them, and to encourage a spirit of goodwill and cooperation between our students and the community-at-large.  We do this by honoring, preserving, and passing on the training methods of our teachers, in the hopes that these practices will enrich the lives of others as they enriched ours.


Aikido Los Angeles is affiliated with Aikido World Headquarters in Japan.  Like our parent organizations, Aikido of Van Nuys does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference, or national origin. 


- We offer instruction in English.

- Private lessons in Aikido, Iaido, Zen Meditation, Women’s Self-Defense and Martial Arts for Movies are available by appointment.

- Please check the events page for schedule updates, testing dates and information about seminars.


We offer thanks to O-Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, for the beautiful martial art which is his great legacy to the world, to T.K. Chiba-Shihan for his example, and his efforts to preserve and promote O-Sensei’s art over the years, and to our chief instructors, at AIKIDO LOS ANGELES for passing on their teachings to us, and to our friends and families for their steadfast and unwavering support.
