Welcome to Shobu Aikido Houston
Aikido was created by the founder as a way to resolve conflict in a creative way; with the preservation of life. It reqsuires us to become better people. Aikido uses the natural movements taught to us by nature combined with Japanese Samurai Secrets to take control of the conflict at its inception.
Aikido creates a peaceful warrior with a strong body and mind with skills to control, disarm and neutralize attackers. Aikido is a path which will influence and improve your daily life. The dojo will be your oasis, to be present, to relax, to face challenges with a centered mind, elegant posture and correct action.
Shobu Aikido provides a direct link to the teachings and mission of the founder Morihei Ueshiba. Through his direct student Mitsugi Saotome Shihan to Ana V. Arango Sensei.
It is our sincere mission to bring to you the teachings of the founder through practice, training, lectures, study and meditation.
The facilities of the Dojo were designed exclusively for Aikido practice with your safety and comfort in mind.
The garden and school are designed in a traditional Japanese manner. Our aikido school observes the rules and etiquette as delineated by the founder, Saotome Shihan and Arango Sensei.
Our school is affiliated with ASU and our black belts are recognized and certified by Aikido World Headquarters in Tokyo Japan.
