Practical Self Defense. Modern Disclipline Aikido!
Aikido of Charlotte is a North Carolina Non-Profit Educational organization founded over 25 years ago and is the oldest, most experienced aikido dojo in the Charlotte.
Our Chief Instructor, Dennis Main Sensei, 5th Dan, Shidoin, has 43 years of experience and is the most senior aikido teacher in the Charlotte surrounding area. We are dedicated to the teaching of traditional Aikido as handed down from the Founder, Morihei Ueshiba (O’Sensei). We have an Air-conditioned Retail dojo with a 1,000 sq. ft sprung mat system just minutes from Uptown Charlotte and highly accessible from South Charlotte or the Lake Norman area. We have an “open mat” policy where you can come watch and/or participate in a class. We encourage fellow aikidoka from other dojos to come seek us out in their travels. We strive for a “friendly” atmosphere where we train seriously yet have a lot of fun at the same time. Our dojo is run by Dojo Cho, J. Weiner Sensei, 4th Dan, Fukushidoin, please contact him for questions.
