Welcome to Mountain Coast Aikikai

Mountain Coast Aikikai is a registered not-for-profit martial art organization located in Vancouver, BC.

Established in 1991, our mission is to promote the health, wellness and fitness of the whole person through a direct experience of training in Japanese budo and related disciplines, specifically:

Mountain Coast Aikikai provides a dynamic, knowledgeable and positive environment where individuals from all walks of life can gain improvements in fitness, flexibility, calmness, self-discipline and mindfulness, through the study and practice of these disciplines.

Our training methodology embraces the physical practices of martial discipline, technique and vigorous training, combined with proven mind-body integration and concentration practices, to build the connection between mind, body and spirit.  This, in turn, helps individuals to become more 'alive' and 'mindful' in their day-to-day lives and prepares them to serve and contribute meaningfully to the communities in which they live.
