New class! Introduction to Aikido, starting April 6, 2019

We have a new 8-week class, Introduction to Aikido!  The class runs for 8 weeks, from April 6 – May 25, 2019.  It will meet on Saturdays from 12:30 – 1:30 pm.  The cost for the 2 month session is $95.  You can register here.

This course is intended for beginners who would like to learn more about Aikido.  Learn about the philosophy of Aikido as well as movements, safe falls, partner techniques, and weapons techniques.  No special equipment or uniforms required.   We hope you’ll join us!

If you are interested in starting Aikido, but cannot make the Saturday class, fear not! You are also welcome to join our beginner/all level classes on either Tuesdays or Thursdays from 7:00 – 8:00 pm.  Cost for those classes is $50 per month for one class a week, or $65 per month for unlimited beginner / all level classes.

Big news: a new location!

We are excited to announce that the Kobukan Dojo is moving to Northeast Minneapolis!

We will once again have our own, dedicated dojo space in the well-maintained (and very safe!) Waterbury Building in the thriving Northeast Arts district. We are on target to start classes at the new location next week!

We also send a big Thank You to the Blaisdell YMCA for making Aikido part of their program offerings for the last 3+ years. It has been great to see Blaisdell Y’s community programming expand, but Aikido class time has been getting tight, so this move opens new possibilities for us to support our students in their Aikido study with additional class options. It is an exciting time for Yoshokai Aikido in Minnesota!
