You don't need any previous experience or skill to start aikido. If you're able to get up off the floor you're fit enough to begin to train. Soon you'll feel yourself becoming fitter, stronger, more flexible and more coordinated.

After a quick introduction to the dojo and it's protocols, the Beginners' class starts with a light warm up and stretching. Then you'll begin to learn to fall and roll safely and comfortably and be introduced to fundamental body movements. We will work on some simple techniques with a partner and then the class will come to a close. Each of the four classes will follow a similar format.

By the end of the Beginners' Course you will have made new friends, be feeling more at home at the dojo and have a good idea of what is involved in practicing aikido. We hope that you will also be keen to continue your training with us.

Our Beginners' Courses are very popular and fill up quickly. If you do not feel able to commit to all four classes, or Wednesday evenings are not possible for you, please contact us as there may be other starting options that would better suit you. Let us know, we're keen to help you start!
