Founded in 1973, Bond Street Dojo offers seminars and daily martial arts classes in Aikido and Japanese sword in midtown Manhattan, New York City.

The fundamental mission of Bond Street Dojo is to provide
a safe, respectful and sincere environment to study, practice and disseminate the principles of Aikido.

Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei, the founder of Aikido, and his disciples have said that the purpose of Aikido is to help people better their lives, to make their spirits blossom and become strong, and so improve the world.

Through consistent partner training and exploration of Aikido as a martial art, we seek to develop our physical, psychological and spiritual strength. Through this practice, we can manifest the principles of Aikido and understand our choices, open our hearts and become compassionate in the dojo and in our daily lives.

In addition to its regular classes, Bond Street Dojo invites prominent Aikido instructors to conduct workshops throughout the year. The dojo also hosts weekly study groups in Iaido and Katori Shinto Ryu.

Bond Street Dojo is a not-for-profit organization, and is affiliated with the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (ASU).
