Aikido - Way of Peace

Aikido at the D.R. Semmes Family YMCA

Often called the Way of Peace, Aikido is a martial art based in a non-violent conflict resolution. Aikido principles involve harnessing the power of an opponent’s attack, thus allowing the aikido practitioner the tactical advantage regardless of size and strength limitations. Aikido is a path for personal transformation, as well as a great form of exercise and practical self-defense. Children are taught in a setting that encourages self-discipline while allowing them to be kids. Students must always maintain respect for the serious nature of training in a martial discipline, or budo. 

Visit for more information on the art of Aikido.

FitPath is a FREE program for all Y members designed to help you reach your wellness goals. On your initial appointment, a YMCA Wellness Coach will discuss your goals, review all the options available to you, set you up on our YMCA SATX mobile app, and help create a program tailored to your wellness journey. Follow up appointments will be available to help ensure you stay on track and are achieving your goals.


FitPath is not a high-pressure sales pitch for personal training or a medical appointment where you’ll be poked and prodded. You don’t have to worry about being uncomfortable or embarrassed; you won’t be asked to do anything you don’t want to do.


Everyone! Whether you’re new to exercise or in tip-top shape, FitPath is designed to help everyone, whatever your goals, exercise or activity preferences may be. Whether you want to lift weights, take classes, swim, play sports or have some other interests in mind, we want to make sure we do our part in helping you get started on the right path.


Members who meet with a Wellness Coach within their first two weeks of joining are 6X more likely to achieve their goals. Let’s make sure you're one of them!

The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits gained through early exposure to fitness are far greater than just physical health.


If you are already a member simply schedule a time for an orientation and a staff person will walk you through the proper use of the equipment. Once registered, you will be on your way to monitoring your workouts!
