Aikido South is an aikido dojo located in Atlanta, Georgia. Aikido South is a member of the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba and shares space with Atlanta Judo Midtown in Midtown Atlanta.

The training focus of Aikido South is rooted in internal power and the lost art originating from the founder, Morihei Ueshiba. Demonstrably different than most aikido dojos, Aikido South focuses on the body work of internal power training applied to aikido movement. The curriculum is complex and individual-oriented, as implied by Fudo Myo, translated as "immovable esoteric training."

Aiki is the joining of the two ki's as opposing forces, in you. This is best expressed in Heaven, earth, man.

A fundamental pillar of Aikido South is the belief that aiki is a demonstrable body feeling created through the management of Heaven-Earth-Man within the body.

The dojo is a safe environment in which to train. As part of training, it is the responsibility of the student to preserve that environment and keep the dojo clean, safe, and well-maintained. It is also the responsibility of the student to be properly prepared to train.

We invite anyone to visit the dojo and attend class.

Jon Reading is the chief instructor of Aikido South.
