US Taido Official Dojo

Taido is a fun and creative martial art that’s great for children and adults.

Though we’ve been teaching Taido for decades, we’re only just getting started to spread Taido across the US. The American Taido Association’s mission is to teach authentic Taido that exceeds the International Standard, so we’re working to educate and train the next generation of teachers and open more dojo over the next few years.
