When you join Aikido of Charlotte not only do you get the benefit of being taught by superior instructors, you are actually joining a community of practitioners who’s relationships extend beyond the edge of the mat. You become friends, co-workers, almost like a family…participating in each others lives outside the dojo.- Jim Plunkett, 3rd Kyu
Aikido of Charlotte is the first school I have visited in a very long time that made me feel comfortable learning at my own pace – the instruction is excellent and there is also no feeling of needing to prove yourself or to be the new “tough guy” in the class.- Kristen Stone, 5th Kyu
“I’d like to thank Aikido Charlotte for an enlightening and informative self defense class, that I attended. I loved the professionalism and practical knowledge I learned from the class. I feel much more confident from what I learned in a few hours. Sensei D. Main and Sensei J. Weiner were extremely informative and helpful in their instruction and gave great advice during the practice sessions. I’d highly recommend the course and am considering enrolling in the school as a result. Thanks again!”- Debbie B, Self Defense Class Student
