Welcome: About Sierra Aikido and FAQ for Newcomers

What We Do

Sierra Aikido is a nonprofit 501(c)3 Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to community service in education and health. Applying a holistic approach, we make Aikido a platform for personal enrichment, physical health and emotional wellness for all ages 5 to 80+, and life skills development for our youth.
  • Public Programs: Regularly scheduled classes are open to all adults, children and teens. In addition, by special arrangement, we offer custom-tailored training, including individual lessons, short courses and workshops.

  • Community Outreach Programs: We reach out to adults and youth in underprivileged and underserved communities through partnerships with community organizations and other nonprofits. Together with our partners we aim to make Sierra Aikido training accessible and affordable to anyone on or near the San Francisco Peninsula.

  • Special Needs Children and Teens, coping with challenges such as ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Sensory Integration issues, are welcome. Our objective is to mainstream our students whenever possible, with coaching as needed, in an inclusive environment.
