Martial Art of Peace

Morihiro Saito Aikido Master

Aikido Westchester NY Dojo

Aikido is a traditional Japanese Martial Art that teaches compassion as the foundation for self defense. Conflicts are best resolved before violence erupts. The goal is not to defeat an opponent, but to change their spirit in a positive way. But should violence begin, Aikido teaches strategies such as returning the hostility to the attacker in the form of a throw or pin. The philosophy of Aikido can be used in all areas of life.

Aikido Westchester NY is affiliated with the main Aikido headquarters in Tokyo and follows in the powerful lineage of Morihiro Saito Sensei. Our Westchester dojo is supervised via the Takemusu Aikido Association.

Aikido Westchester NY is conveniently located with its own parking facility to serve the lower Westchester County region in areas such as Yonkers, New Rochelle, White Plains, Mount Vernon and the Bronx.

Still Mind Tai Chi & Original QiGong

Master Yu Yang Style Tai Chi

Tai Chi and Chi Gung are the martial art that is best known for its health benefits. But to gain the greatest health benefit, understanding the martial aspects can be very helpful. The slow movements allows one to inspect the same stances and postures as used in Aikido, and importantly develop the muscle memory to use these stances as needed. For this reason, the combination of both practices is quite useful for some.

Yang style Tai Chi is practiced in a manner more closely aligned with "old Yang style," closer to the original form. During practice of the Tai Chi form, the upper body is relaxed while the legs are fully engaged. Ultimately in Tai Chi as a martial art, force must be used, but one must learn how to control it properly. Benefits include increased energy, balance stronger legs, etc.
