Kaizenshinkan, the Dojo’s name, translates to “continual improvement minded”. “Kaizen” is “continual improvement” and “shin” is “mind”. Dojo means “training hall”, so Aikido of Escondido is “The Continual Improvement Minded Training Hall”. Founded in 1999 by Sensei Kevin Kelleher, Kaizenshinkan Dojo has served hundreds of adults and children helping them to become more confident, disciplined and both physically and mentally fit.
Conveniently located in the Felicita Village Shopping Center in Escondido, the dojo is just minutes from I-15 providing training for students from Escondido, San Marcos, Vista, Poway, Valley Center and other areas in North County San Diego.
