Welcome to the Higirikan Aikido Dojo website.
At the Higirikan Dojo*,
we study and practice the Yoshinkai school of Aikido.
Aikido is a Japanese martial art based on the combat disciplines of the samurai. Aikido teaches smooth, balanced and relaxed movement, and focuses on living in harmony with one's circumstances.
Aikido is effective self-defense and excellent physical exercise. It teaches a philosophy that integrates physical, cultural, and spiritual values that can have a profound effect on one's everyday life.
If you are interested in practicing, or curious what Aikido is like,
please come by our dojo in South San Francisco.
Visitors are welcome to watch our beginner classes.
We look forward to practicing our Way of Harmony with you.
