Hayward Aikido is an Aikido dojo offering classes for adults and children. We have daily training classes in Aikido, bi-weekly classes in Iaido (the art of the sword) and private classes in Kenpo-Karate on request.

Our mission is to create martial artists who are strong and balanced in both body and mind.

Our mission is to create martial artists who are proficient in defending themselves and those they care about.

Our vision is for the true essence of Aikido as a martial art to live on in our students who walk the streets of the world in confidence and harmony.

Our Values:

  • Authenticity
  • Commitment
  • Integrity
  • Justice
  • Perseverance

We believe Aikido is a complete martial art. While techniques are primarily studied from a core of traditional attacks to develop a foundation, training with a comprehension of distance, positioning, and force vectors coupled with an awareness of openings makes them highly adaptable to any scenario.

Forge your body and spirit. To fully develop requires a diverse group of training partners of different body types and abilities. Come train with us!
