New Dojo Build Fundraiser

Since relocating to the Phoenix area 4 years ago, I’ve been fortunate to establish an aikido practice with a group of very dedicated individuals. Through the generosity of other area dojo, we’ve been able to rent mat time to practice aikido. I am now asking for your help as we embark on a new journey to establish our own dojo near downtown Phoenix.
Having our own dojo will allow Valley Aikido in Arizona to implement our unique version community activism. Valley Aikido in Arizona will be a space where we put the philosophy of aikido into action (follow #aikidoinaction). While our core activity is to get more people engaged in the practice of aikido, we will also be a community resource focused on action and advocacy in the area pet adoption and awareness. There is a vital need for pet adoption in Arizona and we plan to contribute to that effort.
On our Go Fund Me page you will find our vision and our start up needs to move forward in those goals. Every contribution will help us towards our goal. We sincerely hope you will partner with us and we thank you. Arigatou Gozaimasu.
