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.
How we do it.
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 self-defense programs for those who work in fields where they are exposed to the dangers of an uncertain world. Aikido offers options that are appropriate and compassionate, while seeking to maintain personal safety.
Off the mat we bring specialized training opportunities to many who would not normally choose to join us on the mat. 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. If you have an idea or need for a training we can develop it.
We reach out to the community by our volunteer activities and by working with others in the Spokane area to build, beautify, and support the neighborhoods we live in.
