A Bigger Aikido World

Our dojo is a member of the Capital Aikikai. To say I've enjoyed training and learning with them would be a drastic understatement. Use these posts to learn about who they are and where they are located.  If you join our dojo or another one in the area, I certainly hope to have the chance to work out with you on their wide and welcoming mats!


Capital Aikikai Instructors

Clyde Takeguchi Shihan is the founder and director of Capital Aikikai. Takeguchi Sensei is a shichidan — a seventh degree black belt — and a Hombu-certified shihan instructor. He began his study of aikido in 1958 in his native Hawaii. In addition to founding Capital Aikikai in 1973, Takeguchi sensei founded the aikido clubs in Madison, WI, and Charleston, SC. He has taught aikido at the police departments in Honolulu and Madison, as well as at the US Customs Academy in Washington, DC.

There are many additional skilled martial artists and martial arts instructors associated with Capital Aikikai. We do our best to have guest instructors as often as time and students allow.
