Welcome to the MAC, a Martial Arts dojo. We are a not-for-profit Aikido dojo (school) in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood. Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art which focuses on blending with an attack in order to neutralize it. Instead of strength, strikes, and force, Aikido emphasizes movement, technique, and balance. Our active membership includes women and men from all walks of life, ages 6 to over 70. As a new member, you will pair with many experienced Aikidoists, guaranteeing a self-paced, dynamic, and varied approach to learning this dynamic and varied martial art. The benefits of practicing Aikido go far beyond mere self-defense. We invite you to come see for yourself!
