Litchfield Hills Aikikai (LHA) is a traditional aikido dojo. As a martial arts center for the whole family we offer classes for adults, teens and children. LHA is a member of the United States Aikido Federation and is thereby directly affiliated with Aikikai World Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.
Founded in 1995, LHA remains dedicated to teaching aikido according to the principals of the founder, Morihei Ueshiba. By focusing on clean technique, developing one’s center, cooperative and productive practice, and an open heart and mind, we strive to make all members comfortable in their individual commitment and progression through this beautiful and dynamic martial art.
