Tips from Voters

  • Very welcoming.

    Vote: BEST Martial Arts

  • Best dojo I have ever had the privileged to train in. The culture for lack of a better word is inspirational! The teachers are encouraging yet patient, and deal with everyone on an individual level. I have trained over 20 years and only overcome many of my insecurities in fears after becoming a student at Old City Aikido. My children will attend when old enough for this very reason.

  • Everything is great about OCA. But words are meaningless before the truth of "seeing is believing." Just stop on and watch a class for yourself. You will see that it is not like most cookie cutter schools.

  • Incredible attention to detail in training. This dojo is for those who want to cultivate personal growth as a martial artist more then their biceps.

    Vote: BEST Martial Arts

  • My kids love learning Aikido here. Tuition is reasonable despite of the convenient location. Sensei as well as Senpais are very patient. I appreciate them trying to reserve spiritual aspect of the martial art.

  • Sensei's Waite and Perna provide an amazing amount of attention to the details of aikido training. This is a Dojo that is based in tradition, training, and fealty to the subject. I have studied many martial arts but rarely seen a dojo with this much candor. This is a place that needs to be experienced to be believed.
