Aikido of CT was established in 1965 by Ralph Chiaradia Sensei. Chiaradia Sensei offered a traditional soft style of Aikido that focuses on ki development. Chiaradia Sensei received his training from Koichi Tohei Shihan and Mitsugumi Saotome Shihan- students of the founder of Aikido, Morehei Ueshiba. With Sensei Chiaradia�s passing on May 18, 2016 the leadership of the Dojo passed to his two most senior students Brian Putkonen and Jon Guglietta.

The dojo operates independently and is proud to be the 13th established dojo in the USA.
