Aikido Classes in Berkeley

In January, all of our classes are FREE for new students! Just show up at any class, 30 minutes before the scheduled start time.

AIKIDO is a martial art focused on acting with fluid grace and calm clarity in the midst of any challenge, from physical conflict to the daily work of cultivating harmony in one’s life and relationships.

The Aiki Arts Center is a community-oriented Aikido dojo in Berkeley, California, founded by Nick Walker Sensei and Azzia Walker Sensei.

We’re committed to maintaining a training environment grounded in the best martial arts traditions of respect and mindfulness.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, or register here and show up at any class when you’re ready to begin training!

We’re located at 2525 Eighth Street in Berkeley (near Dwight Way), in Studio 12.

We are an LGBTQ-friendly dojo. For more about our approach to Aikido, see this interview with Nick Sensei.
