One of the most amazing dojos I’ve ever had the pleasure to call home. I’ve trained in Morioka, Japan, Munich, German, and many dojos in the States including Aikido West Reading for over 10 years. AWR has everything one needs for wonderful training – great teachers, engaged students and a community that has a willingness to learn from each other. The space is clean and lovely. There is humor, friendliness and openness. Also, as a woman, it’s important to me that folks be serious about their training (instead of their ego) and available to learn martial arts from and with a woman as equally as with a man – I find and appreciate this here. I remain completely grateful for the aikido and personal growth I experienced from my training at AWR and recommend it to everyone.
