South Austin Aikido is a community of people working together to create a dynamic and evolving understanding of the art, of each other, and of how we relate to the world. Aikido is more than just a system of defense, and we do not train simply to defeat opponents. We train to understand ourselves, to improve our response to adversity, and to grow through our practice. Beginners and new faces are always welcome. The progress of each individual student is nurtured and celebrated by everyone at our dojo.
South Austin Aikido is a non-profit school devoted to the purpose of teaching Aikido to the Austin community, founded and run by a non-profit educational organization: South Austin Aikido Association, Inc. We are a group of individuals with many years of Aikido practice and teaching experience, who are dedicated to spreading the principles and art of Aikido. Membership is open to all: the Association and any of its associated entities, does not discriminate based upon age, sex, race, handicap, color, nationality, or creed.
AISD Off-Campus PE Credit
The Austin ISD Off-Campus Physical Education Equivalent Program provides an opportunity for students in grades 7-12 to receive credit for participation in an off-campus, physical education/athletic program. This program gives full P.E. credit toward the student's requirements. AISD has approved South Austin Aikido as an agency for their off-campus P.E. credit program.
Our dojo is an affiliate of the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba under the leadership of Mitsugi Saotome Sensei. Mitsugi Saotome Shihan is the master instructor for ASU. The ASU is affiliated with World Aikido Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.
Aikido is not an art to fight with enemies and defeat them. It is a way to lead all human beings to live in harmony with one another, as though everyone was part of one family.
