As a traditional Japanese martial art, Aikido was developed in the 20th century to utilize an opponent’s attacking energy in order to subdue them without injury. Aikido's founder Morihei Ueshiba's said that “To injure an opponent is to injure yourself. To control aggression without inflicting injury is the Art of Peace.”
Bozeman Aikido was founded in 2018 as an evolution of Big Sky Aikido by three senior students under the long-time instruction of Greg Olson Sensei, 6th Dan. The current instructors have accumulated well over one hundred years of instruction in Aikido, which is a testament to the length of time people are able to train injury-free. We are a registered dojo with the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba under the guidance of Saotome Shihan and affiliated with the Aikikai Foundation Hombu Dojo in Tokyo, Japan.
