The best way to find out if Aikido is suitable for you is to jump right in and participate in a class. All Riai Aikido schools offer at least two free classes for beginners, so there’s no reason not to give it a go. The Auckland Learning Centre (AKL LC) is a dojo where students learn at their own pace.
All our regular classes are suitable for beginners. Our instructors take into consideration who is attending and make sure that all levels and abilities are catered for.
It’s generally a good idea to phone the contact for the school in advance of your first class to confirm the class time and let them know you’re coming. If you’re unsure which age group is right for you, or have any other queries at all, don’t hesitate to phone the listed contact person for advice.
