Martial Theory for Mindful Living.

Aikido Chuseikan of Tampa Bay is Tampa’s most respected school for traditional Japanese martial arts. We offer experienced, safe, and serious instruction for men and women at all ages and levels including Aikido, Shotokan Karate, Combat Systema and Zen meditation. While we are serious about practical defense, our members are focused on cultivating mindfulness, composure, and calmness from martial training and using those lessons to create positive outcomes for every-day conflicts – at home, at work, and in society.

We are seeking thoughtful students who want more from their training than sport or violence. Discover fun, fitness, community and purpose that will change your life!  All new adult members receive a one-on-one introductory session with a black belt or instructor to introduce them to the etiquette, exercises, and rolls, and to ease them into the Dojo community and training environment.

COVID-19 Safety Is Important To Us.

We are working hard to protect the health of our members and students, while still providing channels for our community to stay connected, study, and grow, and to train at a level that is consistent with scientific guidelines and long-term, sustainable dojo training. We intend to maintain a long-term balance between supporting our members who wish to train conscientiously in the dojo, and those who want to keep a more conservative risk strategy by participating only remotely. Please take note of the current phased schedule and training plan, which supersedes our normal published schedules:
  • May 18 – May 30: Zoom training will continue SuMTuWThSa, except that Zoom training classes will be led from the dojo and active members may participate live at the dojo on Tuesdays and Saturday afternoons (while maintaining social distancing). Details at
  • June 1 – June 30: In-dojo interactive training will resume with heightened sanitation and disinfection protocols, required masks, temperature checks, and no-contact (distance) training such as weapons. A reduced schedule will be announced before June 1.
  • July 1+: Long-term, in-dojo interactive training will resume. It is expected that adjusted hand-to-hand training will resume with special considerations for interpersonal-transmissibility reduction and heightened disinfecting regimens. A revised schedule and details will be announced.
