California Aikido Association (CAA)
The California Aikido Association (CAA) is a worldwide community of teachers, dojos, and aikidoka whose primary common bond is the art we practice. It is fortunate to have within its membership many teachers with varied backgrounds and complementary skills. As such, the CAA embraces many stylistic and technical traditions, but is guided by the physical and philosophical ideals established by the founder, Morihei Ueshiba. The CAA is an officially recognized organization by the Aikikai Foundation, Hombu Dojo, Tokyo, Japan.
