Support the OC Beach Cities Aikido Foundation
AIKIDO IS THE WAY
The OCBCAF non-profit foundation was founded to promote love and compassion in our local community with programs that provide wellness, leadership, and mentorship to empower the body, awaken the mind, and enlighten the spirit.
THE ART OF PEACE
Aikido offers a nonviolent way in the face of conflict and is based on principles that can be applied to all aspects of life.
Aikido promotes self-awareness and blending with one’s partner, and de-emphasizes competition and aggressive conflict.
STRENGTHEN MIND, BODY & SPIRIT
Aikido is a philosophically enlightening art form that enhances the mind of the practitioner while also empowering the body.
