Kirin Aikido Academy Dojo


Based in Circle Pines, Minnesota, the mission of the Kirin Academy (喜凛塾) is to provide a world-class education in the martial art of Aikido to select students seeking to dramatically increase both the efficacy of their technique as well as their speed of learning.


Kirin instructors are able to accomplish this via a teaching methodology focused on efficiently transmitting core movements and fundamental principles. As the essential buildings blocks necessary to effectively execute all Aikido techniques, only by understanding these, can a student hope to develop a true mastery of Aikido.


Our principal teaching staff was educated in Japan, at the Aikido World Headquarters in Tokyo, under the direct supervision of the arts most renowned exponents, over a period of several decades.
