All dojo members are invited and expected to attend as many classes as possible. Offering different classes during the week allows Sensei to put emphasis on different aspects of Aikido training — it is not to restrict attendance to any class.

Please come in shape and prepared to train. For all ranked dojo members, the dojo is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Shoshin Dojo Orlando is the creation of Master Instructor Daniel Linden Sensei, 6th Dan Aikikai. Built as a screened open-air pavilion, the dojo is situated on 70,000 sq. feet of lush Florida land. Ginger, azalea and bamboo make this dojo a paradise of tropical plants, citrus trees, and genuine Florida living.

Shoshin Aikido Dojo is a traditional school in the sense that Linden Sensei has created a perfect environment to train, to develop friendships, to form bonds which may last a lifetime.

Officially opened as a single dojo in 1994, it now serves as the main dojo for the group of Shoshin Aikido Dojos. Over the last years, students of Linden Sensei have opened their own Shoshin Dojos in Kissimmee and Casselberry, Florida. Being part of one big Aikido-family, these teachers and their students regularly visit Shoshin Dojo Orlando.

Plans are in the works for opening a new Shoshin Aikido Dojo in the central mountians of Maine near Dover/Foxcroft.

Sensei welcomes the chance to meet and train with all Aikidoka in his unique and personal style. Come, but be prepared to play hard and have fun.
