We Rise Again

The new Aikido Journal is now live. We hope it will serve as a platform that will fuel the community’s efforts to elevate both ourselves and the art of aikido.

Please explore both the website, and Aikido Journal TV, our new streaming video  service. Starting now, we’ll begin publishing new content regularly on a weekly basis and will soon have news on our larger scale vision and strategy for the journal. This is only the beginning.

This new chapter in the life of Aikido Journal would not be possible without the community’s support and insight. If you’ve not already done so, please learn about the Heroes of Aikido Journal. Without them, none of this would be possible.

After you take a look around, please leave us a comment and let us know what you think or just say hello. We hope the new Aikido Journal will serve the community well.

Executive Editor of Aikido Journal, CEO of Budo Accelerator, and co-founder of Ikazuchi Dojo.

  • Congrats Josh,
    Just checked out the new journal.
    Always liked the great reference materials available.
    Looking forward to all future editions, so glad that you re sparked my interest after waiting the little time (understandably of course), Now can not wait to see 1 beside my inbox, with the journals name.
    Thanks you and team great effort guys it looks great!

  • For those of us unable to train as much as we would like, it is so good to see what has been a vital resource of Aikido History rise up again! I know that you will continue to honor it’s legacy with the same bravery and integrity of its late founder and managing editor Stanley Pranin sensei. YouTube and other mediums have become noisy (and boisterous) regarding Aikido. I am glad to see that someone is going to speak up for and promote The Founder and his greatest students at various times of their development and instructional legacies. Aikido History Will Keep Its Voice!

  • You have done a great job. I am sure Stan is proud .
    Can I use my past log in credentials? my email was not recognize.

    • Ramiro,

      Thank you for the kind words! If you’re looking to access old products or the members site, your old login should still work. If you are having problems, please email us at:

      and we can troubleshoot for you.

      Best regards,


    • Greetings! We are still going through the vast archive but I believe we do have Spanish translations of many of the old articles.

      We plan on building a plan soon to support additional languages. However, first we need to finish defining our overall content strategy and then get an efficient workflow process in place.

      After that, supporting additional languages is a priority for us. Many community members are in Spanish speaking countries, so this is a priority for us 🙂

  • I am impressed with how you have improved the Aikido Journal. Sensei Pranin would be very proud. I study and teach at the Vineland NJ Aikikai. We are a small Dojo and few new students. I bring to class new ideas and teaching techniques often from what i learn from posts from this amazing site. Thank you. Your Aikidoka friend NiDan Jim Branin

    • Jim,

      It’s great to hear from you and thank you for your support. Greetings from your friends in California! I hope to be able to meet and train with you in the future.
