Community

We don’t just teach martial arts & self-defense.  We bring like minded individuals who are interested in Martial Arts and Self Defense together in a community of learning and friendship.  Throughout the year we have many get-togethers for students to socialize outside of their regular dojo training environment.  This gives an opportunity for all the students to meet at once regardless of age, level or class time.


Friendships

Unlike Judo, Jiu-jitsu, Wrestling, Karate, Kendo, Kung Fu, Wing Chun, Kickboxing, Boxing, Muay Thai, Arnis, Silat, MMA, Krav Maga, Taekwondo & Tai Chi; Aikido is non-aggressive and non-competitive.  Students train in a friendly learning atmosphere.  They create long lasting friendships with other students through training and social events.  The founder believed that there would be no more wars if everyone practiced Aikido.  The way of Peace and Harmony

Testimonials

Mike – Uxbridge, ON

After dipping my toes (unsuccessfully) into various martial arts for nearly 30 years, I feel like I have found my place in the study of Aikido. The ability to train under Shihan Dai Graham Stewart has opened up a window for me into the history and techniques of Aikido directly from the halls of the Honbu Dojo in Japan (I consider this a very rare opportunity). Shihan Dai Stewart’s dedication to his journey with Aikido is apparent in every class and is incredibly inspiring to a beginner getting his toes wet.

I feel very fortunate indeed to have had our paths cross.”

There is so much diversity in the art. It never gets boring. No two classes are the same and that makes it challenging – in a good way… Aikido is going to push me for years to come. Aikido is just a great vehicle to shape and chisel your life and by making yourself better… 

Joining this school has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made… It’s also a great way to get your mind and body into shape, shake off daily stress, and meet some great people!  I also really appreciate the way that the school is run, in particular, the level of integrity and that the organization’s focus is consistently first on the art of Aikido and secondarily on business aspects.”
