Links and Seminar Information


Here are some very useful links to the broader aikido world.


Aikido Schools of Ueshiba - Our parent organization - Mary Heiny Sensei's website. Her schedule, bio, writings, and other information.


Aikiweb - the best dojo search, forums, articles, and more


Aikido Journal - articles, forums, aiki-stuff to buy


Aiki.Com - online store, dojo and event listings (including Mary Heiny Sensei's schedule), and the Aiko Institute


Bujin Design - Hiroshi Ikeda Sensei's business. Hakamas, training weapons, clothes, bags, and much more


A list of dojos within a few hours drive of Pittsburgh that we think well of. All are worth visiting, either for regular training or a seminar. If a dojo isn't on the list, it just means that either we haven't been there or we don't know anybody who trains there.
