Welcome to New England Aikikai
In Boston Since 1966 - The Original Aikido Dojo
The Japanese word Aikido is written in three characters which roughly translate as, "The Way of Harmony with the Universe." Aikido is a true budo, or Martial Way; evolved in the historic tradition of Japanese warrior arts. Studied in earnest, Aikido is more than a science of tactics and self-defense; it is a discipline for perfecting the spirit.

Aikido was developed by Morihei Ueshiba, known as O Sensei (Great Teacher) to more than one million students of Aikido throughout the world.

Our Sensei
Mitsunari Kanai Sensei was one of the last uchi-deschi (apprentice students) of
O Sensei, with whom he
studied intensively for over ten years.

I would especially like to thank Donovan Waite Sensei. His uplifting presence and the patience, generosity, and kindness inherent in his excellent instruction is an inspiration. It was a weekend full of the fun and friendship of community and the development of our Aikido and weapons skills under the outstanding teaching of one of the foremost martial artists of our time.
