Welcome to the Torrance Aikido Club.

The Torrance Aikido Club is Torrance’s oldest non-profit charter club, located in the heart of the Torrance Cultural Arts Center.  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.

The club has a sizeable dojo and a supportive group of students. Our instructor is Clarence Chinn Sensei, 7th dan. He is a respected teacher and longtime student of Koichi Tohei.

We offer classes for youth and adults. Discounts are available for families as well as college and high school students. We also sell all necessary equipment. See our schedule, location and fees.
