The Aiki Institute of Spokane
The Aiki Institute of Spokane is dedicated to the teachings of Aikido and its philosophy of cooperative peaceful living and personal character development both on and off the mat.
On the mat, at Roshinkan Aikido Dojo, we offer traditional instruction in the powerful martial art of Aikido as developed by Morihei Ueshiba (O’Sensei) and following the instructional methodology developed by Toyoda Shihan. We are affiliated with the Aikido World Alliance (AWA) whose chief instructor, Andrew Sato sensei, was a long time student of Toyoda Shihan. Through the AWA we are associated with Hombu dojo, world headquarters of Aikido in Tokyo, Japan.

We offer individually tailored workshops in the areas of team development, conflict management, communications skills, community building,relationship development, centering, potential development, and,creativity, to name a few.
