TAO Los Angeles Dojo

True Victory is Victory Over Oneself

“Masakatsu Agatsu” – “True Victory is Victory Over Oneself”, Morihei Ueshiba

Our dojo the Nishi-Aikido Ohana, is a small club, training in a thoughtful, friendly, environment, dedicated to the study of Aikido.

Aikido at the Nishi-Aikido Ohana is practiced in a joyful, supportive, non-competitive environment. We believe that by training to joyfully blend with aggression towards us on the mat, we will learn to meet the challenges of life with a positive, non-combative spirit.

We do not seek to learn how to defeat others, instead we seek to learn how to master ourselves, the founder said "self victory is true victory".

Training is not based on physical strength, age, or gender, but rather on the sincere desire to learn and to improve ourselves. We welcome your interest and encourage you to contact us with any questions that you might have.

We practice at the Nishi Hongwanji in Downtown Los Angeles, 815 East First Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

We meet Mondays 7:00 - 8:30 and Wednesday evenings,
6:30 to 7:30 pm Regular Class
7:30-8:30 pm Beginning class.
