GETTING STARTED


Beginners and visitors are always welcome! Please feel free to come watch any class on our schedule without appointment. If you've been thinking about giving Aikido a try, be bold and take the first step!

We recommend that you watch a class before joining, but you are also welcome to try a class before deciding on membership. Every school is different and we feel that it's best to watch a class before starting in order to get a sense of what our dojo is like. After becoming a full member, students are required to commit to training a minimum of two days per week. 

In your first few classes, you will be given instruction on basic movements such as stance, footwork, and how to fall to the ground safely. Learning to fall is one of the primary points of instruction and is essential to be able to practice the art fully. Performing the techniques with effectiveness and concentration is one of the most important basic skills to develop, and we will work to each person’s individual physical abilities when getting started–everyone is welcome.

The rewards of Aikido training are proportionate to one’s commitment. Learning such a traditional martial art form is not easy and the most important quality is a resilient attitude with a desire to pursue this path of training. With this type of commitment, the training will not only forge a strong person in body and mind, but, most importantly, in spirit.

Every day is a chance to grow stronger, more focused, more compassionate, and more aware. Every time we step into the dojo and onto the mat, we earn a small victory over laziness and self-doubt.

Becoming present and truly alive is not an achievement to be unlocked; it is a struggle that demands our effort and attention each day:
