Broad Street Dojo









Our dojo was founded at the direciton of Maruyama Sensei, the founder of the art of Aikido Kokikai International. 


The word dojo (dō-jō) officially means "a room or hall in which martial arts are practiced;” In our dojo we train and learn together; there is a sense of community and dedication.


Because everyone is unique and every dojo is different, we encourage you to try our school before deciding if it is the right fit for you.

Shuji Maruyama Sensei

Elements of Training 

There are five core elements to Kokikai training.

  • Empty-hand defense
  • Weapons defense & practice
  • Ki development 
  • Ki breathing
  • Kiatsu (accupressure)
'Ki' can be loosely understood as a comfortable, powerful coordination of mind and body. 

Principles of Kokikai

These same principles apply in daily life.
