We are a women-friendly club

  • Women have their own shower room
  • Women are treated with the same respect as men
  • We believe that women can do Aikido well


Masa Kokoro Aikido Dojo came into existence in September of 1998 At SAIT (Southern Alberta Institute of Technology). Our philosophy in Aikido is to teach harmony and self confidence in life. Like O-Sensei said, “True victory is victory over oneself”. It’s still true. Today we still train our students to follow the philosophy of O-Sensei’s teachings. Learn the art well and be humble.

We are a high-spirited club with dedicated students who are eager to learn. We follow strict Japanese discipline and tradition which links us to the founder of the Art and all those who study it.

  • Aikido Definition

    The word “aikido” is made up of three Japanese characters: AI – harmony, KI – spirit, mind, or universal energy, DO – the Way. Thus aikido is “the Way of Harmony with Universal Energy.” However, AIKI may also be interpreted as “accommodation to circumstances.” This latter interpretation is somewhat non- standard, but it avoids certain undesirable metaphysical commitments and also epitomizes quite well both the physical and psychological facets of aikido.

  • Hakama

    What is the name of the kind of skirt the aikidoka’s wear?

    Hakama. It was originally worn by samurai’s and is used to conceal the movind of the legs. It depends on the dojo where you’re in if the wearing of it is permitted when you’re not a shodan.

  • Aikido Pros

    Aikido is a good, viable self-defense. It is probably better for self-defense than any of the empty-hand martial arts that are commonplace including TKD, karate, hapkido, jujitsu, and judo. It has been reported that some old-school judo teachers have told their students that for real self-defense do aikido but for sport do judo.
