Beginners 10 Week Program

This quick track to yellow belt allows an introductory overview of Aikido.  Classes are available in family (ages 7+) and adult (ages 14+) streams.

Participants receive instructions in safety, defensive techniques, meditation and breathing exercises, they are also taught the history of Aikido, and are given demonstrations of more advanced throws, pins and locks.  Training is based on two nights a week on Tue and Thur, at 5.15pm for family, and 6pm for adults.  The eligibility to grade requires 80% attendance.

There are three intakes a year, starting the first week of February, May and September.  If you are interesting in booking your place, please email us advising if you want to be in the family or adult cohort.
