Tatami Studio (Aikido) Winnipeg Aiki Shuren Dojo

Our dojo offers Aikido classes to children, youth and adults.

Tatami Studio has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. However, it is also a place of serious study, mindful of the martial arts tradition and purpose. The training can be physically challenging, but is not necessarily so. Students work at their own level of physical ability and stamina, relaxing when necessary, challenging themselves when appropriate. All levels of Aikido students train together. We would encourage you to come down to the studio to watch or participate in a class! Send us an email to let us know that you are coming.


Aikido is a non-violent martial art and an excellent self defense skill that can be practised by people of all ages and levels of physical wellness, either as a recreational activity or as serious discipline. The Japanese word ‘Aikido’ consists of three Japanese characters that can be translated as ‘the way of a harmonious spirit’ or as ‘the way of unifying (with) life force energy’. O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba's goal was to create an art that practitioners could use not only to defend themselves while protecting their attacker–but also an art that developed and refined the spirit.

Aikido techniques consist of precise movements that redirect the momentum of an opponent's attack. Classes focus on techniques, that also involve the bokken, (wooden sword), the tanto (wooden knife), and aiki-jo (wooden staff). Tatami Studio teaches Iwama Aikido as passed down from the founder O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba (b.1883–d.1969), who’s dojo (place of martial arts practice) is located in Iwama, Japan.


Ama has been fortunate to have spent time with many great teachers in pursuit of widening and deepening his love of Aikido.

Ama began his Aikido training in the UK and has been studying Aikido for 15years. He has travelled extensively throughout Europe, the USA and Japan studying the art of Aikido. Ama spent over two years as an uchi-deshi (live in student) studying Aikido and has been fortunate to have spent time with many great teachers throughout Europe, the USA and Japan. Ama has his black belt ranking from the World Aikido Federation (Aikikai) Headquarters in Tokyo Japan.

Tatami Studio is honoured to have been given the name ‘Winnipeg Aiki Shuren Dojo’ from Sensei Mark Larson.
