Quality Aikido and Iaido Instruction

Welcome to Kyushinkan Dojo, the home of Aikido Association Atlanta. We practice the martial art of Aikido at the Roswell Budokan, a community center located in the heart of Roswell. Our Aikido dojo was established in 1995 and has served hundreds of aikido students, both adult and children. Our mission has been to provide quality Aikido instruction and to spread Aikido’s core principles: effective self-defense; self-improvement through rigorous training; and compassionate conflict resolution. We are members of Aikido World Alliance, an international Aikido organization headed by Andy Sato Sensei (7th dan) with direct affiliation to the Aikikai in Japan.

As a non-profit school, we are committed to serving the community by providing affordable instruction in Aikido. Classes for adults and children are offered 7 days per week and are taught by certified instructors who give back to the Aikido community by volunteering their time. We accept students ages 5 and above in our children’s Aikido program. Adults of all ages, martial arts background, and fitness levels are welcome to train. We also offer Myugai Ryu Iaido (traditional Japanese swordsmanship) for interested adult or teenage students.

Please call, email, or stop by the dojo to say “hello” and learn more about Aikido and Iaido. Visitors are always welcome to observe or participate in class.
