Our Story

Logan Square Aikido was founded to serve the Logan Square Community and surrounding areas by offering instruction in the discipline of Aikido, with an emphasis on physical and personal development. As a 501(c)3 non-profit educational institution, we are organized to preserve and teach the traditional discipline of Aikido in order to provide a community in Chicago where individuals from all backgrounds may develop themselves through training together and where we can bring high-quality teachers to our school and provide scholarships that further the training of our students. 

We offer a free monthly class for members of the public to experience Aikido, and our Zen meditation sessions are also open to the public by donation. 

Logan Square Aikido is a member of Birankai North America, an organization founded by T.K. Chiba Shihan to promote quality instruction and practice of Aikido. Birankai is recognized by Aikido World Headquarters  in Tokyo, Japan. 

Logan Square Aikido does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference, or national origin.
