Aikido of Shreveport is a member of Aikido Association of America/ Aikikai: And the only Authorized Authentic Aikikai Dojo in North Louisiana. Essentially a Non profit to spread Authentic Aikido and Rinzai Zen (non religious meditation) to the Arklatex. We offer traditional training with credentials accepted around the world. The martial art of Aikido is known as the "Martial Art of Peace" and offers a non competitive and healing approach to the classical Koryu arts of the Samurai Bujitsu of old Japan. The goal of the student is to learn to integrate and blend with all forces, including those of an attacker. Training presents a student with vigorous physical challenges and supplements the students spiritually with meditations and centering practice to combine all of one's being for the benefit of all things. Being a lifestyle is the main reason Aikido exists and offers a cultural outlet to engage peoples all over the world with the common goal of experiencing common human identity in the art. The Aikidoka will over time experience a change in perspective and heighten one's perception, mental focus and physical ability. In the same way Yoga develops the person, so will Aikido with the added benefit of self-defense skills and camaraderie. Want to Join? Come by any class time, but call 318-469-1952!
