Aikido of San Diego, formerly Aikido of Mission Valley, has been offering Aikido seminars, Aikido retreats, and Aikido workshops in San Diego for over a decade. We have had the privilege of training with many great instructors, including Robert Nadeau Sensei, Miles Kessler Sensei, Patrick Cassidy Sensei, Mary Heiny Sensei, Denise Barry Sensei, Kayla Feder Sensei, Teja Bell Sensei, Dan Messisco Sensei, and of course our own Dave Goldberg Sensei. Subjects have ranged from weapons retreats and exam technique workshops to major events in Evolutionary Aikido, connection, and personal development. In addition to hosting seminars at the Aikido of San Diego dojo, we have co-sponsored seminars with other San Diego area dojos, and groups of our students have traveled together to Aikido retreats and seminars throughout California.

Interested in offering your own martial arts seminars, yoga workshops, fitness classes, or exercise programs? Our facility is available for one-time or ongoing rental to any group with a peaceful agenda. Complete information about renting dojo space here.
