What is AIKIDO??

Aikido is a Japanese Martial Art created during the 1920s by Morihei Ueshiba (1883~1969), an expert who reached the highest level of mastery in the classical Japanese Martial Arts. Aikido is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. Aikido has no competition. The goal of Aikido training is not perfection of a step or skill, but rather improving one's character according to the rules of nature.

About KITAYAMA Dojo 
合氣道 北山道場について
At our friend Dojo Brisbane Aikikai in Newstead
At KITAYAMA Dojo, we provide not only quality instruction of Japanese Martial Arts "AIKIDO" but also the philosophy and culture behind it.

The Aikido KIATYAMA Dojo is a local martial arts club aiming to improve our community’s Self-defense awareness. We are based in Upper Coomera on the Northside of the Gold Coast.

Our head instructor is Gotaro Kitayama Sensei who originates from OSAKA, Japan.

We are an associate Dojo of Bayside BUDOKAI which is funded by Brisbane’s well-known martial artist David KOLB Sensei. Our BUDOKAI Hombu / headquarter has an affiliation with Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Tokyo, Japan and all our gradings are recognised internationally.

At KITAYAMA Dojo, we have a true BUDO approach that focuses not only the martial side of AIKIDO but also Japanese culture which Aikido is based on, thereby allowing students to learn Aikido philosophy.

Our motto is “Bun Bu Ryo-do (文武両道)” which means “Cultivate dual path of martial side and mind/manner side”. 

Our aim is to introduce Aikido to as many people as possible and to increase participation in Aikido throughout the world.

All instructors are accredited through Japanese Aikikai Hombu (headquarters) and with the Australian Governing Body (Australian Jujutsu Federation).

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu!

Aikido at KITAYAMA Dojo 
当道場の指導方針
At Shosenji Dojo in Osaka, Japan

At KITAYAMA DOJO, we have a true BUDO approach that focuses not only the martial side of AIKIDO but also Japanese culture which Aikido is based on, thereby allowing students to learn Aikido philosophy.

Aikido is not a sport and there are no competitions. Therefore the practice can be done within your own ability and at your own pace. It is unlike any other martial art and you can practice it regardless of age, gender or fitness ability.

Aikido is often called “Soft-ish Martial arts”, but it is a true BUDO (Martial art) which has all the principles and effectiveness from Japanese sword movements. That’s why we don’t need to be super strong and quick! Therefore, a very old Samurai can effortlessly defeat a young and fit Samurai.  Aikido WAZA (techniques) can be very sharp and easily hurt people. For that reason Aikido has no competition and uses only KATA (set practice) to practice with partners.

Aikido has its own Aiki-Philosophy that helps to develop a positive manner, attitude and behavior. We cannot neglect this side of Aikido. Development of both physical and mental attributes thereby becoming a complete martial artist, leader and most importantly, GOOD PERSON.

**Generally no make up classes for absentees.




At Aikido KITAYAMA Dojo, we do not teach kids how to fight. Instead we teach kids how to protect and manage themselves physically and mentally. 

It takes the traditional philosophy and spirit of the Samurai, described by Aikido Funder (Morihei Ueshiba), “True victory is victory over yourself (Masakatsu Agastu - 正勝吾勝)”, which meant that at all times the Samurai should focus on mastering self-control.  Therefore, Aikido encourages us to manage ourselves better in life.

Also important for children growing up in today’s competitive and stressful society, Aikido allows them to train within their own abilities and at their own pace, without the pressure to win in competition, since Aikido has no competitions.  

In the Kids Class we seek to:
Mental aspects
Build self-confidence

  • Proper self-confidence also comes with humility (people with too much confidence are often “arrogant”)
Develop freedom within discipline
  • We must know self-discipline to fully appreciate freedom
Learn calmness
  • No matter how hard our heart beats, our mind needs be calm to make the right decision under pressure.  Aikido training uses many exercises to develop a calm mind

Become stronger whilst showing care and respect towards weaker people

  • True martial artists never abuse or misuse the arts and always help people in need

Physical aspects
Aikido’s various UKEMI skills (Soft-rolling, Break-falls etc...) 

  • Learn to relax your body and minimize the risk of injuries
Aikido’s basic SABAKI movements
  • Learn TAI SABAKI (Body movements) and ASHI SABAKI (Foot movements) to build up core muscle, reflections, and body coordination skills that will be beneficial doing any sport or martial arts
Basic Aikido Techniques
  • Learn 'simple' and 'easy to use' techiniques to protect themselves in a Stranger situation, Bullying situation, or any dangerous situation. (HOWEVER, in Aikido the first lesson is to avoid any dangers, thereby developing awareness to sense such dangers!)

*Our Kids Classes may be STRICKTER and have a very traditional Japanese approach in etiquetts compared to other dojos, so please read "Dojo Etiquetts"carefully and understand before joining us, PLEASE!

**Classes are conducted in English and Japanese

*** If your child / children disturb classes, we will ask to leave the dojo in order to keep good learning emviroment for other students

Our Head Instructor 
道場長プロフィール
Gotaro Kitayama
 - Aikido 3rd Dan  
 - Level 2 NCAS Martial Arts Instructor (Australian Sports Commission)
 - Certified Personal trainer
 - Queensland Police Blue Card

Gotaro’s martial arts training commenced with Judo and Kendo at his middle school in 1990, and his Aikido journey begin in 1996 at Tenshin Dojo in Osaka, Japan. He has been very lucky to train at many different dojos in Japan and Australia.

He met David KOLB sensei when he moved to Brisbane in 2003 at Brisbane Aikikai and began his teaching shortly after. He has organised Aikido demonstrations for Japan Day at university.

Through Kolb sensei’s direction and influence, he is fortunate to have trained under the guidance of many prominent Aikido Senseis in Japan and Australia, including Shimamoto Shihan 8th Dan and David Brown Shihan 6th Dan.

He realised his interest in teaching Aikido to kids when he found out his wife was pregnant in 2015, He started to be a volunteer kids class assistant at Bayside BUDOKAI and learned how to teach kids directly from Kolb Sensei. In 2018, he started new Aikido Kids class at Brisbane Aikikai with great supports from his wife and Mark Pearcy Sensei. The first (and only one) student was his two years old son!!

By day, Gotaro runs a Traditional Japanese Seitai Massage (Budo Remedial Bodywork) clinic.

It has been Gotaro’s dream to open an Aikido Dojo since he started Aikido in 1996. Aikido is Gotaro’s life journey and he wishes to learn and improve Aikido together with everyone he meets through his Aikido KITAYAMA Dojo.

Arigatogozaimashita for your interest!

I am really happy to congratulate Gotaro Kitayama on the commencement of the Aikido Kitayama Dojo.
Gotaro has dedicated himself to the study of the art of aikido over many years.  Already a leader and gifted instructor, he is well prepared to take on the responsibility of being a teacher in his own right.
Prospective members of the Aikido Kitayama Dojo can be confident that they are learning an authentic version of the art in a true Japanese cultural context.  Parents in particular, can be assured that their children will be supported in a safe, happy and disciplined environment. 

Gotaro and his family are wonderful people and I am fortunate to count them as my friends.

I am looking forward to the future growth of aikido in Gold Coast under the guidance of Kitayama Sensei.

I had the privilege to first meet Gotaro when we were partnered for Shodan grading almost 20 years ago and I believe it was his energy and enthusiasm that drove me that day. For many years after we trained together and I continued to admire his unrelenting passion to improve his Aikido, his humbleness despite his growing ability, and his continual display of Japanese etiquette both on and off the dojo mats.  Although he claims his interest in teaching children started in 2015, I have memories of him several years before that, arriving early to Friday night Iaido classes so he could help me teach children’s Aikido class at Brisbane Aikikai. Even then his patience and support with young students was impressive. After our lives took us to separate parts of the country we continued to remain friends and train together when I visited Bayside Budokai.  I was honoured to participate in both his Nidan and Sandan gradings where each time I was impressed at both his technical ability, but also the calm and relaxed manner he performed Aikido.  He is an excellent training partner, both as Uke and Tori, and ever time I leave a training session with him, I feel a little sad that I cannot train with him regularly. 
I highly recommend him for teaching Aikido to both adults and children.

Gotaro is an exceptional character, who has strong family values and truly demonstrates respect to everyone. He is a shining example who teaches by leading, without compromising his values and the arts. 
These reasons and more make him a highly regarded person, who is well skilled in aikido, and a highly valued student/teacher. 
I have known Gotaro and trained with him for at the last 17 years, and I believe he is an important human bridge that brings the best of Japanese culture to the rest of the world.



Adam Howard Sensei
President / Dojo-Cho  Brisbane AIkikai

Aikido 3rd Dan (Training since 1993)
I have known Kitayama Sensei for many years and even had the opportunity to train with him in Tokyo. Several years ago Kitayama Sensei expressed an interest in starting a kids class at the Newstead Dojo. We all thought it would take months and even years for him to build the class up, however we couldn’t have been more wrong. Within a few weeks we had many complaints from the adult class members who couldn’t get a car park at the dojo due to the popularity of the kids class! I have never seen so many people attend our dojo! It looked like a circus was in town and quite frankly was embarrassing to the rest of us given we haven’t been able to grow our adult class numbers for many years! The reason behind the kids class success at our club is 100% due to Kitayama Sensei. The word that best describes Kitayama Sensei is “humble”. Another is “respect”. Every time I have the opportunity to train with Kitayama Sensei I learn more about these two concepts. Although I have lived in Japan for several years, I have never met a person who is able to blend the best characteristics of Japanese and Australian culture. Kitayama Sensei has managed to do so in his own unique way, and I personally have learned so much, and continue to learn from him. 


Tom Garwood Sensei
Manager / Jimu Cho Brisbane Aikikai

Aikido 2nd Dan (Training for 10yrs+)

Since first meeting Kitayama sensei at our club just over 12 years ago, he has been a constant source of inspiration to me as a student of aikido, and I know of many others who feel the same way.  I say this because his practice of aikido is so impressive, both to watch and to learn from.  Outside the training hall, he’s a warm and incredibly generous individual.  He doesn’t show off in class, but if you’re curious enough to ask about the principles of whatever we are studying, he always has an extra technique or two up his sleeve, like a walking encyclopaedia of samurai arts!  Anyone looking for a place to learn aikido- or interested in Japanese martial arts generally- will thank their lucky stars if they choose the Kitayama dojo.




Sayaka Matsuo Sempai
Aikido 1st kyu (Training since 2015)
北山先生の合気道は理論的に言語化されていて、説得力も伴っているので、信頼して稽古を続けることができます。また、先生の日々の礼儀正しさや謙虚さは、合気道以外も見習うべきところが沢山あることを気づかされます。長く師事したい指導者です。 

Kitayama sensei can logically explain the details of techniques so you can trust and continue training for long period of time. Also, his very Japanese style manner and humbleness is something you can learn with Aikido techniques.



Roy Quek Sempai
Aikido 2nd Kyu (Training since 2008)


I respect respect Gotaro Sensei for his
humbleness and enjoy training with him. He has a calm and collected personality and takes time to explain techniques to further facilitate understanding. He is patient but firm, especially with kids and emphasizes on proper etiquette and
respect in the dojo, which I believe would benefit anyone even outside of the dojo.

Women's Aiki Self-defense Class
合気道 女子の部

Aiming to start in OCTOBER 2022 
Date:       Every Thursday Late Morning 
Location: Hope Island (not Upper Coomera Centre)

Cost:       $15 per class (Monthly member $50/Month)
                Plus Annual membership (Insurance Fee)

*Please register your interest


Women's class focuses on "Easy to use" Self-defense techniques with more approachable Aikido plus traditional Aiki exercise for wellness

NOT all martial arts come with same characteristics and styles. Some pursuit STRENGTH, SPEED and TOUGHNESS, but we DO NOT pursuit them! We would rather pursuit “LESS” strength, speed and toughness to against them. We learn to blend, re-direct “force of an attack” and return it to your oppornent very effective way.

Aikido is more than just a Martial art that Aikido follows deep philosophy beyond martial art. Aikido has its own philosophy call “Aiki-philosophy” which follows “Rules of universe”. We aim to harmonize / blend ourself with the nature and everything around us. In other words, we try NOT to against them. The great thing is that we can utilize Aiki-philosophy not only in Dojo practice but also in our daily life.

In our training, we do not have any competitions or sparring and please do not expect to learn special or magical skills or “Ki energy” to throw aggressors without touching aggressors….. like you watch in some action movies.

Aikido training focuses on “Accuracy”, “Direction”, “Space awareness” & “Timing” and you will learn followings without relying on Strength or Speed;

  1. Blending & re-directing force of attacks wisely
  2. Manipulating opponents’ vital points effectively
  3. Defending ourselves effectively

We use safe traditional “Kata (pre-arranged set forms)” and practice with training partners, so you can train at your own pace and physical ability in safe and relaxed manner.
