"I have been going to Aikido of Scottsdale for some years and I highly recommend it. Sensei Brooks has a deep understanding of Aikido and a talent for instruction. He promotes a serious study of the art while at the same time keeping the classes fun and enjoyable. The students are friendly, welcoming, and fun to work with. My daughter also attended the children's classes and those are great, too. "

A very welcoming community. I joined a year ago and have been coming since. If you are new to Aikido, you can find here a group of Aikidoka that are open to teaching you. If you are advanced, you will find many black belts to train with. The chief instructor, Brooks Sensei, is a great, devoted teacher who truly cares about his students. Also, the dojo is large and it has AC!

I love the classes and life lessons here. My 5 and 7 year olds are in the youth classes. The core philosophy behind Aikido as I understand it is to blend energy and use the momentum that is given to you. We talk a lot in our home about how these concepts relate to so many parts of daily life. The instructors for the kids class are amazing. They are kind, fun and outgoing. All while they work on teaching the physical movements, respect, confidence and self defense. The kids are waiting at the car to go on Aikido days!

Sensei Glenn Brooks is a 6th Degree Black Belt and has a passion for sharing his knowledge of Aikido with all the students in the dojo. The fellow students that make up the dojo are friendly and great people to train with, no matter what your rank or Aikido knowledge. "
