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 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.
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.
We are taking the pandemic seriously. We have implemented the following extra precautions:

No matter your race, color, gender, identity, religion, nationality, experience level, or age, you will find a new family here. The sign on our door says “All are welcome who enter with a respectful spirit and a desire to make a positive difference in the world.” We strive to create an environment where each member is recognized based on their personal growth, effort and contribution, and to foster a community that is inclusive and reflective of our diverse society. Your voice will be heard, you will be safe, you will be offered respect, and you will be given opportunity to learn and be promoted fairly and impartially. We hope you will join our community and help make it stronger.
