Riai Aikido Wellington was established in 1993 (last year we celebrated our 21st birthday).  We are a friendly club, have an active membership, and welcome new members with or without prior aikido experience.

Try Aikido

We welcome anyone wanting to study the art of Aikido.  For adult beginners, each dojo has beginners classes or streams. These will take you from basics to yellow belt, and provide a solid foundation for joining our adult classes. See our beginners page for how to get started.  If you cannot make beginners class times, or have prior experience in aikido, then please contact us and/or turn up to one of our adults classes.
