Affiliated with Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (ASU), our dojo focuses on the practice of the Japanese martial art of Aikido. Aikido is a self-defense, non-competitive martial art. In terms of its martial application, one of the fundamental concepts in Aikido is to blend with an attack and redirect its energy to either throw or pin the attacker. Instead of meeting brute force with brute force, this martial art seeks to use an opponent's attack against them. Aikido's ultimate goal is for neither the attacker, nor the person being attacked to be seriously hurt. As a "Do" art, it is a martial path, or way, of improving one's self. While physical fitness is important, an Aikido dojo is not a gym. It is a place where you grow as a person and improve your technique.
Milwaukee Shobukan is located on Milwaukee's northwest side near Brown Deer, Menomonee Falls, Mequon, and Germantown. Our dojo hosts a 90 tatami training space for aikido classes. It is one of the largest Aikido training spaces in the Midwest with much of the work of building out the space having been done by the membership.
We currently offer 6 hours of training each week for Adult Classes with plans to add more classes in the near future. New aikido students can take advantage of our Six Month Beginner Package, a $450.00 value for $275.00. This package includes unlimited classes for 6 months, a training uniform, and the student's first testing fee. Our Children's Classes run month to month. More information is available in the Adults Classes, Kids Classes, and the Join page.
