The Beginning — Intro Program

“The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable Path to follow. You are here to realize your inner Divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all that you encounter.”

— Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei, Founder of Aikido

How to begin.

We offer a 4-week introductory membership for beginners. You will be taught some basic throwing and pinning techniques and basic falling (ukemi) so that you will be able to train safely. You won’t need a uniform (gi) for the intro course, just some modest, comfortable clothing that you won’t mind if it gets stretched.

The cost of the introductory membership is $90 for any interested persons.

Introductory members may train up to 3 days per week in any class that fits their schedule with the following exceptions: Adult Instructor class (Wednesday 7:10 pm), Adult class (Sunday 3:00pm) and Kids’ Ongoing Class (Saturday 11:30 am).  Additionally, adults may not attend kids’ classes and kids may not attend adult classes.  As an introductory members you may come to different classes each week during your one-month introductory membership.

To sign up, just come about 10 minutes early to any class to fill out the registration paperwork and provide your payment (cash, check, or credit card) and your four-week membership begins that day!

To help you understand the basic etiquette of the dojo, format of the class, and basic footwork used in Aikido, we have prepared this Introductory Guide. Please read it before your first class.  We also have a video covering a basic class overview.

After completing the introductory program, ongoing regular dues are $100/month. These dues are paid month-to-month with NO CONTRACTS. Ongoing students may attend as many of the regularly scheduled classes each week as they would like.

If you have any questions, please contact us or stop by. Visitors are always welcome to observe class.
