Your community for Aikido in Ellsworth, Maine.
The Ellsworth Aikikai is a not-for-profit aikido school with a welcoming, positive, and safe training environment.
Translated as the way of harmony, Aikido is a non-competitive Japanese martial art characterized by its graceful and flowing movements through which an aggressor's attack is directed to the ground. Practice includes empty handed techniques, techniques against the knife, and paired practice with bokken (wooden sword) and jo (short staff).
Visitors welcome! Please visit us to watch or try out a class for free.
