Welcome to Aikido Tenshindo

Aikido is a modern, non-competitive, Japanese martial art founded on the principles of harmony, awareness and non-violence. Aikido, which translates to “the way of spiritual harmony”, is an effective way for one to avoid harm when under attack without inflicting undue injury on the attacker. However, Aikido is much more than a martial art and outside of the combative mindset Aikido can be thought of as the art of conflict resolution.

Aikido Tenshindo dojo has been operating in Wellington since 1984. We offer morning and evening classes for all levels throughout the week.

Our dojo is fully affiliated with the world’s largest Aikido organisation—Aikikai—and we participate on regular basis in national and international seminars as well as host regular Wellington-based events.
