Aikido is a martial art that is practiced by millions of people of all ages throughout the world. Many practice Aikido as a form of nonviolent self-defence, but many also train in Aikido for the mental and spiritual benefits that it provides.

At the West Coast Aikido Academy training is conducted in a safe, structured environment, free of egos. Regardless of age, fitness level or physical limitations we can help you learn this incredible martial arts and unique way of life.

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. Why? Because Aikido is perfectly suited to controlling an opponent without causing serious injury. Put simply, if you are attacked, your Aikido training will enable you to defend yourself or your loved ones, without causing undue harm to the attacker.

At West Coast Aikido Academy, we are dedicated to helping you acquire practical self-defence skills whilst reducing stress, and getting into the best shape of your life!

The measure of a man (or women ) is what he does with power. You can let Power go to your head or you can use it to benefit others. Peace.

The traditional martial arts are about character development. Yes, we teach the physical self defence techniques which can help you defend yourself however, the true value of our training is to develop a strong, determined and focused individual who does their best to free the mind of ego and live a simple but fulfilling life.
