SHUGYO AIKIDO DOJO – 修行  合気道  道場 
 Aikido is a complete self defense system that protects you and your loved ones while minimizing injury to your attackers.

Aikido’s effectiveness is in its unique addition of joint locks, pins, and throws to basic strikes, kicks, and blocks: it instantly ends violent conflicts, and is one of the world’s most respected arts because of its philosophy of peaceful security. The training is combined with many other self defense skills to help you develop into a complete martial artist, giving you peace in your mind and spirit while developing your body. We will help you develop excellent physical fitness, health, and mental conditioning, and empower you to assume control if you are attacked and stop anyone from perpetrating violence against you or your loved ones.   Shugyo Aikido Dojo is located at: 33511 Western Avenue, Union City, CA  94587
