Rising Sun Aikido

A Traditional Aikido Dojo 


Rising Sun Aikido is a traditional Aikido dojo whose mission is to provide those who train in Aikido a healthier, richer, and more enjoyable life. During training, by blending with both the movement and energy of our partner we learn to resolve the “problem” caused by an attack in a creative, non-violent manner. Cooperation between partners creates a positive atmosphere for learning. And since our mission is to create health, richness and enjoyment, it is a personal responsibility not to inflict injury to our training partners through aggressive or egotistical behavior.

Aikido is a very enjoyable way to develop balance, coordination, centered awareness, strength and physical conditioning.

The goal of Aikido and O Sensei’s dream is that all the peoples of the world live together as one family, in harmony with each other and with their environment. The United States has the opportunity to set a great example.” Rising Sun Aikido is affiliated with Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (ASU) and with Aikido World Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.

The mission of Aikido Schools of Ueshiba is to preserve and disseminate the teachings and principles of Aikido, as transmitted by Morihei Ueshiba O Sensei to his direct disciple Mitsugi Saotome Shihan.
