A new AoM home

In our 15th year, Aikido of Minnesota is expanding to a new home!  We have outgrown our current practice space and we are thrilled to be building out a new dojo in the historic Prior Works development at 755 Prior Ave in St. Paul, less than a mile from our current space.  The development is just north of Menards and is the home of Can Can Wonderland, Blackstack Brewing , the St. Paul Tool Lending Library, and others. 

The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, called Aikido the "art of peace."  As we aim to continue our practice of peace here in Minnesota, thank you for your support in helping us to expand our footprint and welcome new children and adults to the art and spirit of Aikido.

Aikido of Minnesota is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which provides training and education in the art and spirit of Aikido.  All of our instructors volunteer their time and expertise. We train under the direction of Rev. Zenko N. Okimura, 7th Dan Shihan, Board Chairman, Founder, and Chief Technical Advisor of World Aikido Aikikai, Inc.

Thank you for your support!
