About our Dojo

Veterans Memorial Lane, Halifax

Halifax Aikikai is an Aikikai-style Aikido dojo, founded in 1976.

Located centrally in peninsular Halifax, we are affiliated with the Nova Scotia Aikido Federation (NSAF), the Canadian Aikido Federation (CAF), and the Hombu Dojo, Aikido World Headquarters, in Tokyo, Japan.  Our curriculum is set by the CAF, under the technical oversight of Hayato Osawa Shihan, 7th Dan.

Halifax Aikikai is a provincially registered, not-for-profit organization run for the benefit of its membership and for the training of Aikikai-style Aikido.  All funds from dues paid go towards the payment of rent, dojo expenses, and general upkeep of dojo equipment.

Given our location, our dojo is fully equipped with change rooms, water fountains, and showers.  Nearby streets offer easy access to parking during class times.  Finally, we are located very near stops to the following bus routes (as of January 2015): 7, 17, 18, 42, 80, 81, 90, 20, 21, 23, 31, 32, 33, 34, 53, 59, 68, 84, 85, 86.
