Welcome to Shobu Aikido, a martial arts and yoga center located in Union Square Somerville. The dojo was founded in 1980 by William Gleason Sensei after he returned from living in Japan for ten years.

Shobu Aikido offers Aikido classes for all skill levels, weapons classes, and training for advanced martial artists. Of course, everyone (regardless of experience or affiliation) is welcome to train at our dojo. In addition to Aikido classes for all levels, we also host monthly seminars and events at our dojo including Yoga and Kyudo (Japanese Archery).
