About SSA

The Seattle School of Aikido is a cooperative non-profit home for those who seek to sincerely study traditional and contemporary Asian martial arts.  Our core principles are mutual respect, mindfulness, and self-reflection.

In these stressful and increasingly uncertain times, we at Seattle School of Aikido welcome people of all ethnicities, countries of origin, genders, sexual orientations, and religious beliefs. Martial arts offer a special opportunity to really get to know other people in our community. We offer our own bodies to our training partners so that they may further their own training, and in doing so have a shared opportunity to develop trust in and empathy for others.
