Welcome

Baltimore Aikido is a school dedicated to the practice of aikido, a Japanese martial art.  Aikido practice is a form of functional training improving mind-body coordination that applies to activies of everyday life. Aikido emphasizes natural movement and unified body effort to execute techniques. 

There is no one kind of Aikido Student.  Baltimore Aikido is always open to people who can bring new perspectives to our school.  Training with Baltimore Aikido is different from belonging to a gym. Baltimore Aikido offers a strong community based on the nature of our practice, social events, seminars and travel. By training, you become part of a worldwide group of practioners, seeking to better themselves and contribute to a more peaceful society. In this way, Aikido practice can become a powerful anitdote to isolation. 

Aikido practice can offer considerably more than physical training and lead to a life-long study that transforms how you learn, developing a growth mindset and attitude of receptivity. 

Baltimore Aikido is headed by Charlie Page sensei, 7th dan, and Chuck Weber sensei, 7th dan. Baltimore Aikido is a member dojo of the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (ASU), under the leadership of Mitsugi Saotome shihan, long-time student of the founder of aikido, Morihei Ueshiba (“O-Sensei”).

Please feel free to contact us for more information or stop by the dojo for a visit. If you are new to aikido, you may also wish to see our notes for beginners.

Baltimore Aikido is an all volunteer 501(c)(8) nonprofit organization.  Contributions to Baltimore Aikido support the operation and maintenance of the dojo.  Your contribution is tax-deductible.
