Affordable instruction on Aikido in Los Angeles

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.

The dojo offers classes for children and adults. It is also one of the few Aikido schools in the Los Angeles area that offer Iaido instruction.

For prospective students, we invite you to watch at least one class prior to joining. The instructor at hand can also answer any of your questions.  Visiting Aikido students are always welcome regardless of rank and affiliation.  Just stop in for any of our scheduled classes.
