Aikidojo Aikikai Aikido Society and Dojo was founded in 2012 by Jurijs Talmanis, 4. dan, and Jevgenijs Natkovskis, 3. dan, after many years of tutoring elsewhere in Riga, Latvia. Our dojo promotes dedicated practice of aikido in a friendly, safe and clean atmosphere, which encourages personal development and growth.
Members of our dojo come from all paths of life. Although we have separate beginner classes, everyone is welcome to attend the advanced group lessons so that all can benefit from the knowledge of our more experienced members.
Our instructors and students regularly attend aikido seminars in Latvia and abroad. Our primary source of inspiration is aikido as taught by Christian Tissier, Shihan.
