with us.

To train with us you do not have to be super fit. All of our students at one time may have thought that Aikido looked beyond them in one way or another but our training regimen soon proved that indeed it was not.

The dojo has a comfortable mat and  you will be taught Aikido in a manner that will limit any stress to your body and after a while your fitness and flexibility will improve along with your confidence.
