Formerly known as Pinole Aikido, we here at WCA have been teaching Aikido since 1985. We are a non-profit organization and use Aikido to promote non-violent conflict resolution. Our chief instructor, Louis Decena has been practicing Aikido on and off since 1963 and started teaching upon opening Pinole Aikido in 1985. We have always had a very successful children's program and offer an experienced instructing staff for adults.

As of now, we offer classes at both the San Pablo Moose Lodge and the Pinole Youth Center. Any interested are encouraged to come in and watch and even participate.* You can check our class schedule for class times. Try and come a few minutes early if you would like to participate.


*If you would like to participate, please fill out an insurance waiver, print it, and bring it in. (They are also available at the dojo.)
