Aikido of Berkeley is located in the heart of Berkeley at 1514 University Avenue
Aikido is a martial art that emphasizes blending with your attacker to resolve conflict non-violently. In the words of its founder, “There are no contests in the Art of Peace. A true warrior is invincible because he or she contests with nothing.” Aikido of Berkeley offers classes for adults and children age 4 and up. Chief instructor Kayla Feder Sensei, 6th dan, began training at the age of 9 and opened her first school in 1981.
Feel free to drop by and observe a class. Or, if you’d like to jump right in and try a free beginner’s class, Kayla Sensei recommends the Thursday evening class at 6:30. Please wear comfortable clothing and arrive 10 minutes early.
