My name is Vincent Salvatore and I’m the director and chief instructor at Aikido of Reno. I’ve been practicing aikido for over 30 years and have been teaching Aikido full-time since 2002. After all of these years living the art, I’ve never lost the student mindset which drew me to the art all those years ago. I still go to seminars and practice to constantly develop my own personal Aikido as well as my teaching abilities. A focus of mine is applying modern scientific practices to all of the training that goes on at our Dojo.

My vision for Aikido of Reno is to keep expanding my Aikido as well as all of the students at our Dojo. It’s also my goal to help educate the community in less violent ways of conflict resolution.


It’s our most wholehearted intention to remain a friendly Aikido Dojo that welcomes any prospective student to try out the art and see if it’s something that fits in with their lifestyle.

Please give us a call to set up an appointment to come down to the Dojo to check it out in person. We recommend that every potential student comes down to observe a class or join a Beginner’s Program so that they can experientially understand Aikido firsthand.

Thank you so much for stopping by our site and we look forward to meeting you soon.
