The study of Aikido is open to any who would pursue it with sincerity. There are no absolute physical requirements, but routine practice will gradually allow you to participate in more vigorous techniques. Neither is any previous training in any martial art needed to begin. There is no scheduled curriculum; beginners will study along with the rest of the class, receiving instruction appropriate to their capacity.
It is not necessary to arrive with a dogi (uniform). Loose athletic wear is suitable at the start. After the student has decided to commit to study, recommendations for purchasing a dogi may be made.
Visitors are always welcome. We request that visitors watch a class before participating in order to confirm their interest for themselves.
