This is the Aikikai Headquarters in Tokyo, where the kids' Aikido and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Sensei studied. It would be SO awesome to take them to a children's class here! 合気会 合気道本部道場 AIKIKAI AIKIDO HOMBU DOJO

Aikido [a.i.ki.doː] is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. Aikido is often translated as "the Way of unifying (with) life energy"or as "the Way of harmonious spirit." Ueshiba's goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.
