Aikido of Northern Colorado Dojo is Closed

What is Aikido:

Aikido stresses a nonviolent, noncompetitive alternative to traditional fighting techniques. It is effective, realistic, and adaptable. Students discover that Aikido nurtures the development of a calm mind, a coordinated body, and an enhanced sense of self esteem. The basic techniques may be picked up in a short time, but the principles behind the techniques can sustain years of interesting study. An Aikidoka’s practice continually grows more fluid, subtle,
and powerful.

About the Dojo

Our dojo was located in the beautiful city of Loveland. The dojo provided a comfortable space for martial art practice within easy reach from several nearby cities such as Fort Collins, Estes Park, and Greeley. However, the building the dojo was located in was sold and the organization was not able to secure another place that would replicate the feel of the old dojo, so the closure was made permanent.

We were unaffiliated with a larger Aikido organization and fostered an open culture that stimulated an influx of ideas from the variety of Aikido styles and schools that our members had come in contact with. Over the years, our dojo benefited and developed from the input of gifted teachers from other dojos near and far.
