Our dojo was formed in 2012 as a group of Aikido instructors wishing to train together and offer Aikido classes for the Central Coast of California. Aikido Central Coast is located in Los Osos and draws students from San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Atascadero, Morro Bay, and Paso Robles. We offer traditional and innovative training whereby the instructor usually demonstrates principle-based techniques and students then practice together under the instructor's supervision.
Through safe and rigorous training, Aikido students gain confidence and evolve in their proficiency of techniques and appreciation of Aikido principles. Weapons training with the bokken (wooden training sword), the jo (straight staff), and tanto (wooden knife) is incorporated into the classes. The weapons practice fosters improved posture, focus, and execution of non-weapons Aikido movements.
We are fortunate to have several senior instructors with many years of teaching experience here in Los Osos. In addition to leading regular classes, they train in each other's classes and see themselves as students pursuing the same goals as every other student.
Our dojo is affiliated with the California Aikido Association with a direct link to Hombu Dojo in Japan (the Aikido World Headquarters). We welcome students of all styles of Aikido to visit and train with us. Please visit our Aikido dojo in Los Osos to learn more.
