The Aikido & Healing Arts Center of Roseville is a martial arts dojo and wellness center framed by the art and principles of Aikido which was founded in Japan by Morihei Ueshiba in the late 1920s through the 1930s. Aikido is often translated as "the way of harmonious spirit" where at its core the art teaches self-defense based on non-violence and the preservation of life. Aikido techniques typically comprise joint locks or throws requiring very little strength which lends its adoption to men, women, and children.
In the true spirit of Aikido our school will blend not just with our students but with our community as well to create a unique space designed from the ground up to promote non-violent self-defense, physical health, and personal growth.
In 2013, the Center became affiliated with the Aikikai Hombu Dojo by joining the California Aikido Association Division Two, under Frank Doran Shihan. In addition to offering aikido classes seven days a week, the Center offers massage therapy, instruction in Danzan-ryu Jujitsu, and yoga classes for special populations clients.
