Discover Your Inner Power

Ai means HARMONY -- Ki means ENERGY or SPIRIT -- Do means PATH or WAY -- The British Columbia Aikido Federation is a non-profit organization established to support and promote Aikikai-style Aikido in British Columbia. We are affiliated with the Canadian Aikido Federation and the Aikikai Foundation (Aikido World Headquarters, Tokyo, Japan). The BCAF offers Aikido classes in a safe, friendly and constructive manner to youths ages 8 and up, and adults of all ages. Our goal is not only to preserve the art of Aikido in its original form, but to ensure that our community has access to this highly unique and traditional Japanese martial art.
