Welcome to Aikido Azabu Dojo.



Hello! Welcome to Azabu Dojo.


Aikido Azabu Dojo is an official Aikikai Dojo.



We are a conveniently located, authentic Aikido dojo led by a female grand master.

Since opening in 1977, Azabu Dojo has over 40 years' history in imparting the wisdom and secrets of Aikido in a friendly environment.  Stepping into the dojo is an entry into another world, separate from the lively Azabu Juban just steps away.  Grand Master Masako Kawasaki, one of the few female 7th dan grand masters, will lead you in training.



Aikido will ease stress while training mind & body.

Aikido is a unique martial art whose objective lies not in the opponent's defeat, but a in mutual improvement through consideration.   Rather than brute force, techniques focus on circular, flowing movements performed with graceful agility.  These are punctuated at times by sharp counter maneuvers. By continuing this training, you will cultivate spiritual enrichment, physical reflexes, and a healthy mind for everyday life.




Aikido is for everybody:  full body exercise for health & beauty.

In our dojo, everybody joins the same training. Regardless of age or gender,  we practice the same movements together. Through repeated training, you will experience continuous growth. Regardless of whether you are a woman looking for a beautiful way to exercise, or a middle-age individual seeking improved fitness, anybody can start today!

Following Aikido from Master Kosaku Takano

I trained under Master Kosaku Takano, the founder of Azabu Dojo, since long before the opening of Azabu Dojo. Master Takano always sought novelty and innovation. This dojo has been inspired by his ideal “from the old castle to the universe.” He used to say “Aikido is to use the gap, instantly fend off, enter blind angles, with circling motions, hold joints or throw. Without losing concentration, relax your body. Do not clash, do not knock down, do not hurt, do not hit, do not kick and do not go against. Aikido is the art of harmony, taking control of your counterpart without fighting.” I will carry on this ideal for Aikido.



Building a bond among people and imparting a heart of “Zen”

In our dojo, we treasure seasonal events which are fading away in modern Japan, such as rice cake cutting in the New Year, bean throwing in February, summer camp on the beach and a public demonstration called “Enbu” in October. In this dojo, you can train in both Aikido as “active Zen” and the tea ceremony as “calm Zen.” Let’s follow this path together!

入会のご案内 / Become a member.



現在、一般の平日の稽古参加者は1回に 6 ~ 10名程です。






Dojo is always open for new members.

Currently, general lessons average 4 to 10 participants per session.
Main training in Aikido is “Kata (form)” training, not a match or fight.
We start with warm-ups and stretching, followed by “Kata” training.


“Kata” training is done in pairs. First, the master shows the form as an example, then the participants copy the movement and repeat. Each pair takes turns and partners are changed with each kata.  We do the same training for everybody, from beginner to black-belt, male or female, youth or elder. There is no "win" or "lose" in Aikido.  Isn’t that interesting? 


If you are not comfortable with conversing in Japanese, do not worry. Your fellow participants are happy to help you and there are many English speakers in the dojo.
