Welcome to Newport Beach Aikido! As Orange County's only full-time aikido dojo, the Shin Do Kan dojo was established in 1987 to teach the traditional art of aikido. It continues the legacy first started in Japan during the last century by the founder Ueshiba Morihei. The world class dojo is made up of a cosmopolitan and diverse group of students and is led by chief instructor Pennewaert Sensei, 6th Dan. He insures a high standard of safety at all times and provides a solid foundation in the basic fundamentals of aikido technique and etiquette. We offer adult classes, children classes, and seminars to help increase your Aikido training and knowledge with visiting guest Sensei from Japan, Europe, and Australia. With showers, large canvas practice mat, and changing rooms with private lockers available, the Newport Beach Aikido dojo offers all the amenitities for your aikido traning.
