Aikido Center of Jacksonville
Aikido is for everyone. It's never too late to start training, whatever your age. And if you've never stepped foot in a martial arts school before? Don't worry! We offer a gentle introduction to Aikido for our newest students.
A bit more about our school. We've been around a long time—since 1992, in fact. And during that time we've grown to become one of the largest Aikido schools in north Florida. We're a member of the United States Aikido Federation, with schools located throughout the country. And we're the only school in Jacksonville affiliated with the world headquarters for Aikido, where it all began.
And our teachers? Dee Sensei, our chief instructor, is the highest ranked instructor in Jacksonville recognized by world headquarters. She's also the only certified Aikido instructor in north Florida.
Aikido is a great way to get in shape and stay healthy. Our students develop greater mental focus and a calmer, more meditative outlook, while learning to defend themselves.
We offer classes six days a week, in the morning and evening. We also offer a diverse weapons curriculum, including sword, staff and knife training. Students may take as many classes as they wish, on as many days as they wish. There are never any contracts to sign.
Aikido is the perfect martial art for children. Our children's classes emphasize fundamental Aikido skills, such as rolling and tumbling. As your child progresses, we introduce more advanced techniques, including self defense applications. Safety is always our paramount concern.
Your child will learn self-discipline and self-respect, and develop an attitude of unshakeable confidence.
