About Us

West Coast Aikido Martial Arts Academy teaches the Yoseikan Budo style of Aikido as taught by Ōsensei’s direct student Minoru Mōchizuki. Our Style of Aikido involves a combination of Daitō-ryū Aikijujutsu, Judo, Jujutsu, Karate, & Shinto-ryu underpinned by Aikido’s principles of harmony and non-resistance combined with linear and circular footwork to off-balance an attacker and apply joint locking or throwing techniques. Some of the hallmarks of Yoseikan Budo is the use of atemi (strikes using feet, fists, elbows and knees), projections (essentially techniques from judo), sacrifice techniques (sutemi), self-defence including dangerous techniques (various joint locks, elbow hits), groundwork (ne waza) withhold-ons and joint locks, and work with weapons (bokken, wood stick, knife).
