Our team is aware of these issues and we appreciate your understanding and patience as we deal with the challenges of these extraordinary times. We ask that you continue to be patient as your order makes its way to your delivery address.

Delivering to you Faster - Starting June 5, 2020
The Aikido team has learned many hard lessons during the pandemic. In particular, the poor delivery times and resulting poor customer experience has led us to re-think our shipping and fulfillment operations. While shipping directly from our international suppliers to our customers worked well under normal conditions, we anticipate that global supply chains will be fraught with uncertainty for the next couple of years.
For this reason, Aikido is pleased to announce that as of June 5, our products will be warehoused in USA-based fulfillment centers, in order to provide our customers with free 3 business day delivery to anywhere in the USA. This means that we will be able to provide a better shipping experience, including guaranteed delivery times and more predictability for our customers.
Taking care of our employees so they can serve you better
Supporting our employees during these unprecedented times is critical to providing you with the service you need and expect. As COVID-19 has spread, Aikido has taken various steps to protect the physical well-being of our employees so that they are in a position to care for themselves and their families, while also supporting our customers. Our Customer Excellence team members are working extremely hard to face the challenges of the pandemic head-on as we deal with extraordinary volumes and shipping delays. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this together. The commitments we have made to support and care for our employees will ensure that we are ready and equipped to also support our customers during these uncertain times.
