Who We Are & What We Do

Aikido of San Diego was founded in 2000 by Dave Goldberg Sensei and a small group of enthusiastic Aikido students. Originally known as Aikido of Mission Valley, the dojo was established to bring San Diego an evolution in martial arts training for this millennium. Over the years the dojo has naturally grown into a community built on the highest ideals of the art.

Our purpose is (1) to offer an enjoyable, dimensional, and effective practice in Aikido that supports people seeking a better flow with life, and (2) to provide community and guidance for a full experience of the training journey.

We offer classes for adults (including teens), and children. Aikido of San Diego has introduced well over a thousand people to the gifts of the art over the years, and our teaching and culture support all levels of practice from beginning through instructor-level training.
