Aikido in Northwest Portland/Pearl District
Portland Aikikai was founded in 1992 by Yoko Okamoto and Christopher Mulligan, after having finished a period of intensive training at the Aikikai World Headquarters in Tokyo.
At Portland Aikikai, we practice the Aikikai Style, the classical form derived from the teachings of the founder, Morihei Ueshiba.
We are led by our
Michael Napoli, 4th Dan
Ty Barker, 6th Dan
We strive to maintain the environment of a traditional Japanese dojo and are committed to a vision of an authentic, rigorous and welcoming community.
This vision has been sustained for over twenty years.
Portland Aikikai, a member of the United States Aikido Federation, is not a training hall, it is a Dojo, where students learn "dō" or a "way" to improve ourselves through everyday practice.
