International Aikido Association, 726 West Jefferson Blvd. Dallas, Texas 75208 Map



Founded by Bill Sosa Sensei in 1995, and headquartered in Dallas, Texas, USA, the International Aikido Association consists of affiliated dojos in the states and Mexico. IAA provides a non-competitive, family-type atmosphere at its dojos, observing traditional values of courtesy and respect.

Aikido is a martial art founded by Morihei Ueshiba in Japan in the mid-1920's. It has elements of Jujitsu and Judo. Aikido translated means the path of harmony.


We learn to blend with, rather than go against, the force of an attack. The idea is to forget the self, and follow the opponent's movement. In this way, the opponent is defeated by blending with and using his energy.


Mr. Baldemar Sosa began his path in Aikido in his early thirties. After being involved in other forms of sports and various martial arts, he understood from the very beginning the many benefits Aikido had to offer.

Being interested in studies pertaining to the mind but also of a spiritual nature, he felt Aikido offered both. Sensei Sosa, as he was called, felt Aikido training presented a way to acquire more physical energy and to harness it in a proper and advantageous manner. He also believed that same energy could be developed in training and utilized in everyday living.
