Description

Shobu Aikido provides training to those seeking the classical goals of inner and outer development. Our goal is to train the body, mind and spirit simultaneously, so that the Aikidoist learns how to live well and serve others.

We are not a martial art in the traditional sense. While our classes involve physical exercise, this is primarily used as a tool for training the mind and spirit. And while we may contemplate spiritual notions, we are in no way a religious organization. Our organization is open to everyone who wishes to train earnestly and see a positive change in their own nature.

We are a non-profit organization, so that our members are clear at all times that their personal growth, not their money, is paramount to us. This is how Aikido has been traditionally run since its official founding in 1942.

Over the last 29 plus years we have been able to reach individuals and families in the Greater Boston area that have seen their lives and the well being of their communities benefit as a result of their training. In order to better serve our members, and open our doors to as many new students as possible, we have recently relocated to Somerville, MA. The Union Square community has a vibrant demographic, and a true community within a community.

We need your help to continue our mission. Our goal is to raise the community's awareness of what Aikido has to offer and reach as many people as possible in our new and surrounding communities. We hope this will inspire more people like yourself to join our program and benefit from its rich heritage of teachings.

We have seen that when we are able to foster these kinds of experiences in the individual, the community as a whole benefits from their growth. Please help us in supporting that growth
