Our Mission

The name AikiDroid comes from combining the martial art of Aikido and Android technology. 

Its primary purposes are twofold. 

  • 1) Raise money for the Glen Ellyn Aikido Club. 
    • The Glen Ellyn Aikido Club practices at the College of DuPage a community college in Glen Ellyn Illinois.  Due to fiscal cutbacks at the college, our mostly student member dojo has had to cut back practice hours.  With contributions through AikiDroid, we are hoping to re-establish the number of practice hours (and pay for the insurance we now need), as well as have the financial wherewithal to once again host seminars.
  • 2) Provide interactive applications to help Aikido students memorize often difficult Aikido terms.
    • AikiDroid apps run on Android phones and tablets and will be found on the Android Market and this website.  For now, both the free and the donation (paid) versions of our apps are available on the Android Market while only the free versions are available for download here.  In the future we hope to provide both free and donation apps through this website.
