Discover Martial Arts with Meaning.
The Aikido Chuseikan of Tampa Bay is Tampa's most respected school for the Japanese martial art of Aikido. We offer experienced, safe, and serious instruction for men and women at all ages and levels including both Aikido and Zen meditation. 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!
Prospective students can sign up in advance for a special 1-on-1 introductory session with a black belt teacher. Visitors will receive personal attention from an experienced Aikido practitioner or teacher, including a discussion of each individual’s background, health, and training goals.
The instructor will introduce the prospective student to everything they need to know to integrate and participate safely in Aikido training, including an introduction to some basic terminology, warmup exercises, Dojo etiquette, and a few basic falls so students can train safely in an Aikido environment.
Most importantly, the instructor will introduce the visitor to members of the Dojo and make them feel welcome and an invited part of the Dojo community!
If the visitor then chooses to become a full Dojo member, the introductory class fee will be applied toward their membership dues.
