City Aikido of Los Angeles hosts an Aikido seminar with Harvey Konigsberg Shihan, 7th Dan, Chief Instructor of Woodstock Aikikai and USAF Technical Committee Member.
In 1965, Harvey Konigsberg, a promising young boxer at the time, attended an Aikido demonstration by Yoshimitsu Yamada sensei and Koichi Tohei sensei. This soon compelled him to begin his training in Aikido, and by 1970 he was already teaching at the New York Aikikai.
Known for his strong yet subtle style, Konigsberg Sensei teaches Aikido seminars around the world. In addition to being the chief instructor in Woodstock, he maintains weekly classes at the New York Aikikai in Manhattan.
Thanks for visiting City Aikido & Swordsmanship of Los Angeles’ website. The Dojo (lit. “Place of the Way”) was founded in 1992 to promote and develop the martial art of Aikido in Los Angeles. We are located in Lincoln Heights’ Brewery Arts Complex near Downtown Los Angeles. We are just minutes away from Glendale, Eagle Rock, East Los Angeles, Silverlake, South Pasadena, Hollywood, and just a short drive away from other surrounding Los Angeles communities.
CELEBRATING OVER 20 YEARS IN LOS ANGELES
The Dojo, its instructors and bestowed ranks, are fully recognized by the Aikido World Headquarters, Japan and the United States Aikido Federation.
