The New York Aikikai welcomes all visitors with all levels of experience. Whether you are new to aikido or you are an experienced aikido student and thinking about becoming a member, please don’t hesitate to visit us, observe classes and ask questions. For visitors affiliated with another dojo either in the United States or abroad, daily or weekly mat fees will give access to unlimited classes during that period. The New York Aikikai is located at 142 West 18th street between 6th and 7th avenues, in Manhattan’s Chelsea area, with convenient access to major subway lines. The dojo is half a block away from the 1 line and only a few blocks from 2, 3, A, C, E, F, V, and L lines.
