Aikido is an original, non-competitive martial art from Japan that was created by Ueshiba Morihei (1883-1969). It is a partner-based martial art in which partners alternate roles, with realistic situations, applying multiple forms of attack and the receiving end, diffusing those attacks by locks, throws and immobilization.

The intent of Aikido is not to win over the opponent but to avoid confrontation and calmly and peacefully subdue the opponent.

About Evolene Premillieu Sensei

Evolene started Aikido in September 2000. She was fascinated by the Aikido philosophy of bringing peace within the world.

In France, she was a student of Mariano Aristin Sensei and later trained under Franck Noël Sensei, both 7th Dan. Evolene developed interest for teaching while attending school for a master's in elementary school education and got her license to be an Aikido Instructor (BE1) in 2010.

In 2012, Premillieu decided to move to Colorado to train under Ikeda Sensei after attending several week long seminars with him in France. She is extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to train under Ikeda Sensei and Tres Hofmeister Sensei for more than a decade.


Evolene is particularly focused on creating training opportunities for young adults. In 2019, she worked on a project called Aikido For Tomorrow that aimed at bringing the younger generation together and encourage everyone to express themselves within the Aikido community.


Additionally, Evolene is interested in alternative healing practices and has been a Reiki master since 2013. She loves nature and spends the rest of her free time enjoying the mountains. She picked up ultra running as a side effect of covid and now enjoys running 100 miles races.
