ADULT and TEEN CLASSES are held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 7:00 to 8:00 PM.
All classes are mixed level Everyone is welcome
Classes are open to men, women, and young adults, including all skill levels. Dojo dues are paid monthly and members may attend classes as often as they wish. Visitors from other Aikido dojos are welcome.
We are always welcoming new students. New students should be at least 13 years of age. No previous experience is required. No contracts are necessary, however, I ask students to make a three month commitment to the dojo. After all, I am committed to your training and only practice will bring mastery.
How to Join Us
New students are encouraged to stop by and watch classes or take a free class. If you want to take a free class you should approach one of the students before class begins, introduce yourself and sign a waiver. That’s all! You can then take the class. You’ll need to wear a gi or sweat pants and t-shirt.
Previous martial arts experience is not reguired to begin practice, and at all levels, you’ll find aikido practice to be quite social and cooperative. In aikido practice we practice with each other, not against each other.
Adults: $100 a month
Young adults $100 a month
New Members (adults only)
FREE GI Uniform (a $70 value!) if you pay for 3 months in advance
Visitors from other dojos
Mat Fee: None You are always Welcome!
Although we don’t talk much about the subject of breath or meditation, this is the foundation of our practice. O-Sensei left few writings on the subject, preferring to teach his students by direct example. To this day the master teachers put us in the right posture over and over again.
This centering – an art, a science, a practice – changes everything in your life: the way you sleep, the way you wake, the way you sit, the way you stand, the way you walk, the way you move, the way you breathe, the way you feel, the way you think, the way you create.
It is a way of being in the world. In order to do the techniques properly we must rest in the still center. Aikido practice develops this strong still center from which we can deal with whatever arises.
