Aikido of Monterey has become a large part of the Aikido community since its beginning in 1973. We are affiliated with California Aikido Association (CAA) and Hombu Dojo (Aikido World Headquarters in Japan). More about AOM.
Sensei Danielle Smith has been practicing Aikido since 1973 and has been chief instructor since 1976. See about teachers.
Visitors are always welcome to observe classes. See schedule for class times and levels. Beginning students are welcome on an ongoing basis.
