Founded in 1956, Los Angeles Aiki Kai is the oldest Aikido Dojo on the United States mainland.
The original Dojo was located in the "Seinan" (Jefferson Crenshaw) area of Los Angeles and relocated to its current location in Los Angeles, bordering Culver City, in 1967.
As we move forward, providing more than 60 years of service, we mindfully foster our mission set forth by our teachers and our Founder to facilitate practice for the martial discipline of Aikido.
Our Chief Instructor is Robert Ishibashi, 6th Dan.
The Mizukami Dojo is named after Chief Instructor Daniel Mizukami Sensei who's dedication and passion for Aikido and the students of Los Angeles Aiki Kai spanned more than 55 years.
The Dojo is an 60 tatami mat space with a rich history of instruction from many of our Founder's greatest disciples and their affiliates of Aikido here in the United States and abroad.
We are fortunate to have practiced with these great teachers and their students during the last 60 years and it is is our mission to continue to have an open door for any and all who practice Aikido.
