WELCOME TO AIKIDO EASTSIDE
The Aikido Eastside dojo was the first Aikido school on the “Eastside” in Bellevue, WA. Our school has consistently offered the finest Aikido training available.
Several of our members have gone on to run their own schools and currently two schools, Aikido Heiwa in Lynnwood, WA and Gibsons Aikido in BC are associated closely with our school. In addition, a number of the kids from our kids program have not only achieved Jr. black belt, but gone on to also earn their adult black belts as well.
Every year since our founding the students of Aikido Eastside have contributed their time and money to improve the dojo. These years of steady improvement have given us one of the nicest facilities one could ask for, allowing us to train in a traditional and inspiring atmosphere. Our members are immensely proud of what they have created.
