We are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people deepen the quality of their lives, find better balance in a hectic, demanding world, and learn something new to reconnect and integrate mind, body, and spirit.

We do this primarily through our Aikido and Iaido programs. Aikido is a non-competitive Japanese martial art and way of life; and laido is the art of Japanese Swordsmanship.

Shugyo Cultural Center is a 501(c)3 corporation. Your donations are used to fund training scholarships for underprivileged students, to cover utilities, other operational expenses, and to offer low-cost programs to the public.

We survive with help from from outside sources - if you are interested in helping us carry out our mission, please contact us. You can also support us through Amazon Smile Thank you!

Our center dedicated to the memory of Fumio Toyoda Shihan and his teachings. We are a member dojo of Sosei Aikido Kyokai.
