    Club Dues

    We require monthly dues of $50 per person ($35 if you are a full time student or experiencing unemployment). These are paid at first of the month and cover basic overhead expenses.
    Once per year in January, all members pay $30 in Aikido World Alliance membership fees. Kyu testing fees are $25 per test.

    How do I know if aikido is for me?

    Aikido requires commitment and discipline. If you enjoy working with other people and building skills through practice, you will probably like aikido. The only way to know for sure is to try!

    Currently, we have no kids’ classes. Young people ages 13-15 may train in our regular classes as members if a parent or guardian is also training with them. If you’re over 16, you do not need to train with a parent.
