"The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit."
 Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido

Forge Yourself.


In today’s world, there are many demands on our time with activities, obligations, and distractions. Why start training in a martial art when there are so many other things to do?  

Aikido supports overall fitness, strengthens the body, and develops focus and discipline. More than that, however, Aikido is a path to understand who you are and how you relate to others and to situations around you. It is a way to become strong, yet compassionate, take your place in the world while working with others, and to deal with situations in your life openly and confidently. It is a way to find peace both inside and out.  

What to expect at Huron Valley Aikikai:

  • A supportive community of experienced practitioners who are eager to share their passion for training

  • High-quality teaching by certified instructors with decades of experience

  • Training that develops the whole person - body, mind and spirit

  • Serious practice...with some serious fun!
