New York City Aikido
New York City Aikido is a dojo established for the purposes of education in, practice in and dissemination of the Japanese martial art of aikido (合気道) developed by founder Morihei Ueshiba (O Sensei). NYCA holds empty hand and aiki weapons (staff and sword) training sessions in midtown Manhattan, near Penn Station, New York City, NY. NYCA is affiliated with Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (ASU), with black belt ranks issued through the Aikikai Foundation (Aikikai Hombu Dojo). Our dojo principally follows the path of teachings of Mitsugi Saotome shihan, a direct student of the Founder, and Hiroshi Ikeda shihan.
