Welcome to
Aikido of RochesterNY


Who We Are

Our dojo was founded in 2003 by Pavel Rott. Vic Williams succeeded as Chief instructor in Spring 2004 and moved the dojo to Elton St under the name Rochester Phoenix Aikido. We moved to our present location May 2021 under our new dojo name. 

We are a member dojo of the Capital Aikido Federation.

We are located at 3300 Monroe Ave Rochester NY 14681. Many thanks to Eastern Sky Kokikai for allowing us to share their dojo.




Aikido is a martial discipline for training the mind body and spirit. Aikido does not stress competition, but emphasizes a win-win situation that helps develop a spirit of harmony and cooperation, mutual respect and consideration for others. From a technical standpoint, Aikido is basically defensive and oriented toward rolling, joint locks, flowing movement and control of balance.


Aiki - Yoga

A yoga class that focuses on mind/body connection to strengthen the body’s connective tissue.


Peaceful Warrior

Not self-defence. Self-awareness. Connect mind and body to control your own space and influence others' movements within your space. 
Learn to be situationally aware.  
Feel more at ease in meetings, public speaking, social gatherings and on the street. Stay calm in tense situations. Move effectively through crowds. 
Control your space and enlarge your area of ease.
