Welcome to the Twin Cities Aikido Center
Aikido uses circular movements for throws and pins
Your journey into Japan's most intriguing martial art begins here. The Twin Cities Aikido Center - one of the oldest dojos in the Midwest - offers you the resources to explore greater physical and mental flexibility, the opportunity to train with the most experienced group of instructors in Minnesota, and the comfort of a friendly environment where you'll feel at ease learning something old yet new.
Challenge yourself to advance along an uncommon path. Along the way you'll learn how to redirect energy, wield ancient weaponry, and disarm an aggressive opponent with minimal harm. More importantly, you'll discover that much of what you learn on the mat can be integrated and applied within the context of your daily life.
Be proactive. Don't wait. The martial artist within is waiting for you.
Check out our special seminars on the seminar page. (An Aikido seminar is a special practice, not a lecture.)
