Aikido of Petaluma has been offering gentle martial and energy arts for the pressures of daily life since 1983.  Our training emphasizes personal growth and development within the medium of a martial art.  Our instructors offer a supportive, joyful and diverse training environment.

Beginners are welcome and encouraged to observe and participate in any of our classes.


We are currently practicing the sword and jo katas Rinjiro Shirata Sensei transmitted to Sensei John Stevens.  Links to the Misogi No Jo and Misogi No Ken katas can be found here:

Aikido of Petaluma

This is unfortunate but necessary. Thank you for keeping our best interest at heart.Dear Aikido friends:

These past few weeks have been challenging, and there is no certainty when things will return to normal, so after careful consideration and in an effort to err on the side of caution regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are canceling our OSensei Revisited IX retreat that was scheduled for May 1-3, 2020.

We hope to coordinate another OSensei Revisited retreat when this crisis subsides.

Meanwhile, please take care of yourselves, stay balanced and centered, and join our live Zoom calls with Nadeau Shihan. Visit our website for updates: www.cityaikido.com

If you have any questions, please reply to this post.
