Welcome! You are invited to visit the Chenango Aikido Dojo. Please explore this site to find answers about us or Aikido in general.

Aikido is a Japanese martial art, created by Morihei Ueshiba, which develops the unified flow of energy that generates both internal strength and effortless connection with an opponent. Through Aikido we strive to resolve opposition through practical harmony.
