Aikido of Houston

Welcome to our website!

Aikido of Houston is a traditional Aikido Dojo in a Japanese setting with Japanese straw mats (tatami). The size of the dojo is 33 tatami.

Our instructor is T.K. Lee, 6th Dan. Lee Sensei has been practicing Aikido since 1960. He is a direct student of Yoshimitsu Yamada Shihan, 8th Dan, chief instructor at the New York Aikikai and president of the board of directors of the United States Aikido Federation. Yamada Sensei is a direct disciple of the Founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, making T. K. Lee a second generation direct student of our Founder.

We follow the teachings of the Ueshiba Family of Hombu Dojo at 17-18 Wakamatsu-Cho in the Shinjuku District of Tokyo, through our Sensei, Yoshimitsu Yamada.

Aikido of Houston was established in 1981. We celebrated our 30th anniversary in the same location in 2011!
