Aikido Decatur Secures Space on Decatur Town Square

Aikido Decatur, a new aikido dojo in Decatur, GA, has sub-leased space in downtown Decatur, at the dance studio of local dance company Several Dancers Core.  Located at 139 Sycamore Street, the new dojo space sits directly on the Decatur Town Square, a hub for commuters, town residents, and frequent community events.  Classes at the new space will begin January 6, 2009.  Sign ups are now available at the dojo's website.

Aikido is known as the 'gentle martial art', since it emphasizes controlling one's attacker without harming them.  Founded in the 20th century by Morihei Ueshiba O Sensei of Japan, aikido evolved from the more destructive martial arts that had dominated the samurai era of Japanese history.

Aikido Decatur offers classes for children ages 8 and over, and for teens and adults ages 13 and over.  It was formed in January 2009 by Joel Riggs, 2nd degree black belt, who recently moved to Decatur from the San Francisco Bay Area.  More information can be found at
