Albuquerque Iwama Aikido is a group of new and experienced aikido practitioners or aikidōkas in the Albuquerque area led by Sensei Paul Barrett.
Although focusing on Iwama Aikido we welcome aikidōkas from any Aikido tradition as well as those without experience but who wish to learn about Aikido and begin practicing.
We practice Aikido through both a student club and the WORKS program at the University of New Mexico. The WORKS program is open to the general public. We will train in the mat room of the Johnson Center on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 5:00 - 6:30 pm beginning Wednesday, January 18. We also offer a weapons class from 7:00 -8:00 on Mondays in the Fitness Room of Johnson Center and an advanced class requiring the permission of the instructor to attend on Fridays at 3:00 in the Mat Room.
We are a member of the Takemusu Aikido Association
