We offer aikido classes for individuals 16 years and older in all levels of experience. Classes are from Mondays through Fridays, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, and on Saturday, from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.
The dojo is located in the youth building of the Central United Methodist Church, across the street from the Ballston Metro Station (Orange Line of the Washington, DC Metro). An ample street parking is also available.
The chief instructor, Jim Sorrentino, holds a 5th-degree black belt, and has practiced aikido since 1984 under Mitsugi Saotome, 8th-degree black belt and shihan.
Mr. Sorrentino also holds a 3rd-degree black belt in Uechi-ryu karate-do. Mike Lasky, 6th-degree black belt, provides technical advice and advanced classes as well.
