Albuquerque Aikikai: Aikido

Albuquerque Aikikai is a traditional Aikido dojo. Aikido is a Japanese Budo (martial art) developed by Prof. Morihei Ueshiba in the early 1900s. It is based on principles of blending with your attacker and neutralizing aggression.

Visitors are always welcome at Albuquerque Aikikai. We offer beginner's classes several times each year. Training in Aikido helps you integrate body, mind and spirit while developing respect and compassion, learning self-confidence, and getting in shape. Unlike many martial arts, Aikido is non-competitive. Training is cooperative. Students work to develop good character and evolve the creative side of the brain. We have a close collaboration with Kurita Shihan of Kuritajuku Aiki in Mexico City.

"Contemplate the workings of this world, listen to the words of the wise, and take all that is good as your own. With this as your base, open your own door to truth. Do not overlook the truth that is right before you."

Albuquerque Aikikai and Okuyama Shihan hosted a memorial dinner during our recent Iaido seminar. We welcomed Manuel from Kurita Juku Aiki and Mike and Dulcey from Colorado.

During the dinner, we honored the family members we've lost and shared stories of those who came before us. It was a time for remembrance and to come together as a dojo family. These are some photos from the evening.

Thank you to Kayoko Okuyama for the incredible oden soup and curry and to all who attended to share in this special evening.
