About Us

Aikido is a martial art, born in Japan. It combines the spiritual, mental and physical aspects of an art designed to protect you and the person attacking you.


We are located in Richmond and in Houston.  An easy 10 minute drive from Betway 8 and Westheimer for Richmond and in Houston right off the I-10 and Cambell exit.

Schedule and Rates

We have both a monthly rate and a drop in mat fee for those that would like to stop in and either try a class or are coming in from out of town and would just like to train.
