Aikido isn’t only a place to learn a very effective, defensive martial art. It’s a place just full of great energy, and the people there actually care about you. The green building and location serves to show just how dedicated those who run the dojo are to protecting the environment and, in turn, to make this one of the best places to train you’ll ever see. If you skip past the building and take a look at the people there, you’ll see that the building’s positive attitude generally reflects on those who come in. Many people I’ve trained with there have commented that it is a place that’s helped them find their mental balance.
