We are a newly formed group of Aikido students offering an introductory course in Aikido principles and movement in Montclair, NJ. At the beginning of the pandemic, we left our location and are now in temporary quarters. If you wish to observe or take a class, contact us through the "contact page" for current information.

We trace our lineage to Aikido Hombu Dojo, the world headquarters of the founder's organization, through Aikido Centers of New Jerssey, under the leadership of Greg O'Connor Sensei, 7th Dan. O'Connor Sensei has been offering instruction in New Jersey for nearly 40 years and is the author of two highly regarded books on the art.


ROBERT FRIEDMAN, LCSW has been teaching Aikido at Aikido Centers in Morristown and East Hanover for 20 years. He is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice and holds multiple black belt certifications from Aikido World Headquarters, Aikikai Foundation and Aikido Centers.
