Aikikai of Philadelphia

AIKIKAI OF PHILADELPHIA is the first AIKIKAI to be established in the Philadelphia area.  It is allied with the U.S. Aikido Federation, headquartered in New York, and with Hombu Dojo in Tokyo.  This professional school offers a wide range of AIKIDO and Aiki-related activities to suit the serious practitioner’s needs.  Children’s classes (age 6-12) are offered twice-a-week, as well as Aiki weapons, IAIDO, KI Breathing, Meditation and Basic, Intermediate and Advanced classes.  Guest master instructors are frequently invited to teach workshops and seminars, lecture, and also perform.  

AIKIKAI OF PHILADELPHIA’s mission is to develop the whole person through the creative art of AIKIDO.  Chief instructor Henry Smith has designed an original approach to Aikido training that introduces the martial arts student to cross-cultural disciplines and practices emphasizing the realization of vital psycho-physical energy known to the Japanese as Ki.  The practitioner can then develop a deeper understanding and apply these principles in a practical and creative way to daily life.
