Roaring Fork Aikikai
Roaring Fork Aikikai is an aikido dojo founded in 2017 in Carbondale, CO, serving the Roaring Fork Valley including Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, Carbondale, and Glenwood Springs.
Our purpose is to provide world class instruction in the martial art of aikido according to the principles of the founder, Morihei Ueshiba.
We aim to provide an open, supportive, and accepting environment to begin your aikido journey so that the confidence and awareness you foster in the dojo may follow you out into your daily life.
Adult and Teen Aikido Program
Roaring Fork Aikikai offers aikido classes for adults and teens ages 14 and up from beginners to advanced.
Kids Aikido Program
Children ages 5 to 14 develop confidence, self-discipline and balance in a safe and fun environment.
Jo and Bokken training provides aikido practitioners with a deeper understanding of timing, distance, and focus.
