Aikido Classes in Berkeley

All our aikido classes are FREE for new students during the month of January.

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 that’s inclusive, joyful, and grounded in the best martial arts traditions of respect and mindfulness. We are an LGBTQ-friendly dojo.

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

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