Welcome to the New Normal
Owned and named by Douglas Walker, Walker Aikikai is a relatively small dojo located in the Newhope section of Alamy Falls. Douglas teaches most all of the classes himself with 3 truly dedicated students who assist. He emphasizes the Takemusu style of Aikido, which is focused on the original teachings of Aikido as a harmonious and spiritual martial art. He offers a wide variety of classes, willing to teach to those who are interested in it as a dedication but also to casual practitioners, who use the classes almost more as meditation than a defensive martial art. He teaches several classes to younger kids as well.
