Beginner-friendly Aikido Classes in Berkeley!
Aikido Shusekai is an independent school of Aikido in Berkeley, California, founded by Nick Walker Sensei and dedicated to providing a supportive, inclusive, friendly, community-oriented environment for Aikido training.
We’re located at 2525 Eighth Street (near Dwight Way) in Berkeley, in Studio 12. Beginners are welcome to start training at any time – just show up at any class!
All new students (adults, teens, and children) get a free trial class. All teens and college students get a 25% discount on monthly membership.
Please contact us if you’re new to Aikido and have any questions that aren’t answered on this website.
We’re open for the holidays!
We won’t be holding our childrens’ class or our evening adult class on Tuesday, December 24th (Christmas Eve), and we won’t hold any classes on Tuesday, December 31st. But aside from that, we’ll continue our regular weekly class schedule, including our children’s classes, all through the winter holiday season.
