Welcome to the Stillness of Spirit Aikido Dojo Webpage!
Aikido is a Japanese martial art often refered to as the
Art of Peace. It was created by Morihei Ueshiba, who is known as
O'Sensei, meaning the great teacher.
There are many, many books and on-line
resources on the subject of Aikido, but in brief, it is an art (indeed, a way of
life) that helps us learn to harmonize with and bring order to chaos. The goal of
Aikido is not to distroy an enemy, but rather to control a situation. The ultimate
goal of Aikido has been said to be learning true control of one's self.
Bill Sosa Sensei taught the art of Aikido for many years
in Dallas, Texas and eventually opened a branch dojo in Fort Worth. Since that time,
we have found ourselves in many different locations around the city, and under different
affiliations. Sosa Sensei began his studies under Isao Takahashi and Koichi Tohei,
and later affiliated with Rod Kobayashi and Seidokan Aikido. In 1995, Sosa Sensei
founded the International Aikido Association (IAA) which he lead until he passed
away in 2002.
Today, while no longer affiliated with IAA, we continue
to honor and cherish Sosa Sensei's memory. In our classes, we encourage a sense
of community; everyone helping and everyone learning, regardless of rank or skill
level. Please come and join us!
