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! New members are welcome at any time, but we do offer a beginners-only series of classes every January to familiarize students with the basics.
No special equipment is needed when you first start. Once you decide to become a member, you will need to purchase the traditional dogi, or “gi,” to wear during practice. You may also want to purchase a bokken and jo. We can help you find sources for all equipment.
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.
