As a nonviolent martial art and a spiritual discipline, Aikido will improve all areas of your life. You will reduce stress, improve your fitness, become more self-disciplined, have greater focus, awareness, confidence, elevated self-esteem and get more out of life!

Since 1993 West Coast Aikido Academy has trained thousands of local people from all walks of life, from the regular person off the street to emergency service workers, health professionals, armed forces, police and prison personnel.

I was taught that the Martial Arts is all about Honour, Respect and Integrity.

Therefore It is with some disappointment that I feel the need to post this official statement.

I want to make it clear that the following individuals, Tom Wilson, Colin Niland, Ben Mclean and Brad Palmer, and their associated schools, are in no way, shape or form endorsed or recommended by me (Ross Taylor Sensei), and as such do not represent myself or the West Coast Aikido Martial Arts Academy.

Running a professional full-time martial arts school and dedicating 32+ years to training and teaching aikido and other martial arts makes me extremely sensitive to the technical and professional standards required to teach and to run a martial arts school. I wish to thank all my students and members who understand and respect our proven history, teaching and training methods.

It is very easy to open a martial arts school, however it is amazing how many close their doors once it is realized the huge commitment and self sacrifice that is required.

West Coast Aikido Martial Arts Academy has a 25 year track record of proven results within our local community and thus is your guarantee of success.

Once again, I thank you,as a member of our Academy, for your continued dedication, loyalty and support.

Please know that I appreciate your commitment to being your very best in martial arts and in life.

Master Ross Taylor
Dedicated to your martial arts and life success.

Who reads books these days? I still do. In fact I am reading 3 books right now. Aside from your actual training on the tatami you should also be studying your craft. I have read the three books shown here and can say categorically that I learnt so much more about aikido from each book. At West Coast Aikido Martial Arts Academy we have these and many other books and videos that can assist with your aikido and martial arts development. Please feel free to come in and browse and help support the Academy.
