Welcome to Orange County Aikido

Orange County Aikido, The Family Dojo, is a martial arts school of aikido founded in 1964 by Harry Ishisaka, making us one of the oldest Aikido Dojos in Southern California.  Our Dojo combines the traditional feel of a Japanese Dojo with the welcoming “Aloha Spirit” of our founder.  Adults, kids, and families will find this the perfect place to feel comfortable, and challenged as well, as you progress through the art.

Aikido is for women and men of all ages, body types, and physical conditions.  In Aikido we use our oponent's energy against him, so anyone can practice this art.

Orange County Aiki Kai has a very active kid’s program, which focuses on teaching the fundamentals of Aikido and anti-bullying techniques while creating a fun and stimulating learning environment.

 ** Notices **

Our school is currently at maximum capacity for our children's program.  Please contact the Chief Instructor, Brandon Ishisaka Sensei at to be added to our waiting list if you are interested in enrolling a child.  

Adults - we still have availability in our Adult program.
