Our philosophy:

We have five major goals or aims-

Aims of the AIKI BUDOKAI

-  To provide a safe, supportive environment for learning, growth and development

-  To instill the 'Warrior' spirit in practitioner's everyday lives

-  To give practitioners, through the sincere practice of Bujutsu ('martial' skills), tools to continually better themselves and their world

-  To present a correct view of 'martial' arts (and artists) to the general public

-  To help train safe, sane, healthy individuals who are beneficial members of their communities, and of society as a whole
Guided by these Aims, we use shugyo (austere training) and kenkyu (research) as the core of dojo activities.

Visitors are welcome, by appointment, as are beginners and guests.  To schedule an interview, please E-mail or call us 617.501.3446.
