Join us to practice aikido in peaceful surroundings near the shores of Lake Lavon.

For over 30 years, North Texas Aikido has served the community with Iwama-Style Aikido in a safe, friendly atmosphere that fosters learning and development at a pace tailored to each individual student.

Join us for serious training in the peaceful and effective martial art of Aikido, at our free-standing dojo set back amongst the woods and plains of our eight-acre oasis away from the noise and distractions of city life.

Progress comes to those who train and train; reliance on secret techniques will get you nowhere.

Iwama Style Aikido is the style of aikido that was taught at the Iwama dojo by the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, the lineage of which passed on through Morihiro Saito Shihan, a close student of O-Sensei, who was given responsibility over the Iwama dojo after O-Sensei's death.
