Morihei Ueshiba - O'Sensei, Founder of Aikido


Welcome to the Zanshin Aikido School website!

Too often, martial arts schools reinforce concepts, ideas or theories that give students a false sense of reality. We feel that if someone is interested in spending the time, energy and effort to train - the lessons should be something that can work for them in multiple ways in and out of the dojo.

At Zanshin Aikido School we believe in HONEST, PRAGMATIC, REALITY BASED Aikido training.

We breakdown and explain the foundation of aikido that anyone with any level of experience can feel. Aikido is based on efficient movements which employ physics to complete a technique - not force, size or strength.

We clearly outline the difference between learning techniques, blending exercises, testing requirements and criteria, and real world practical applications for self-defense.

At Zanshin Aikido School you will develop:

  • Improved spatial awareness and timing
  • Stronger physical fitness through gradual and progressive phases of training
  • Postural and mobility improvements
  • Proficiency that continues to build as age advances
  • A shift in perception that helps in balancing daily activities.

If you are looking for real martial arts instruction with immediate guaranteed results - please drop in anytime, email, or text, to try few free classes to see what we are all about.

We hope to see you soon!


Zanshin Aikido School is dedicated to provide the most accurate training and philosophy directly taken from O'Sensei's (the Founder of Aikido) top students and dojos.
