Our Dojo

Naka Ima, which literally translates to “inside now”, is the name given to the dojo by Endo Shihan. It means “to be present in the moment” and reminds us not to be caught up in the past or to dream idly of the future, but rather to be mindful of each moment.

At Naka Ima Aikikai, we work on developing the physical body through vigorous flowing practice as well as on calming the inner self through breathing and continued focus on one’s center. This results in connecting through motion.

We also believe in creating a positive energy within the local community by fostering cooperation, connectedness and use of non-aggressive means to resolve conflict. The emphasis of our martial arts practice is on “ki musubi” or the binding together of energy as opposed to resistance or clashing of energy.

Naka Ima is affiliated with the Aikikai Foundation, Aikido World Headquarters at Hombu Dojo in Japan, and a member of Aikido Isshinkai Association.
