We are located at 201 4th Street SE (the corner of 4th St. and Independence Ave., SE) in the building adjoining the Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church (look for the Capitol Hill Aikikai dojo banner). See map for location reference.

In most cases, you can park for free in the parking lot of the National Capital Bank during Aikido class. You can enter the lot via the driveway on 4th St. SE.

There is a bus stop on Pennsylvania Avenue, less than a block from the church. The nearest Metro stations are Capitol South (about 4 blocks away) and Eastern Market (also about 4 blocks away).

Classes are held in the Chapel, which is in a building attached to the south side of the main church building. You can enter the building via a brick path next to the church.
