The Torrance Aikido Club is Torrance’s oldest non-profit charter club. We offer instruction in Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido (Aikido with Mind and Body Unified, or Ki Aikido). The club has been in existence for over 50 years and is affiliated with Ki Society Headquarters in Japan.
Ki Aikido is a gentle, dynamic martial art founded by the late Koichi Tohei. It is suitable for all ages. Practitioners cultivate balance, calm, ki, confidence and a positive attitude in all areas of life. See our page What is Aikido.
The club’s Chief Instructor is Clarence Chinn, 7th dan, a longtime student of Koichi Tohei and head of the Southern California Ki Society.
We offer classes for youth and adults. Discounts are given to families, as well as college and high school students. We also sell all the necessary equipment. If you’d like to know more about us, please feel free to contact us.
