Aikido Tentokai Xalapa, start of class The name of our Dojo, Tentokai, translates from Japanese as "community approaching heaven," and the word dojo means "place of the Way." It is, therefore, a temple, where people come together in a common search for the spirit within, regardless of their religious beliefs. Aikido Tentokai Xalapa is a non-profit organization operated entirely by its members. We are affiliated with Sansuikai International (under the technical direction of Yoshimitsu Yamada Shihan, 8th dan Aikikai), which provides us with a direct link to Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Tokyo, Japan, and assures that the ranks awarded at our Dojo are officially recognized worldwide.

Moriteru Ueshiba, 3rd Doshu, executing kokyunage Classes are offered daily, providing an opportunity for our members to learn in a serious and traditional way. You are cordially invited to come down and observe any of the classes in our schedule. If you then wish to practice, you will be able to take a FREE trial class before deciding whether or not to join the Dojo.
