Belmont Dojo, established on 4 February 2014, is one of the two dojos or training locations in the Wellington region. We maintain ties with our “sister” Wellington City dojo. The Belmont Dojo is a not for profit organisation and instructors give their time freely.
The Dojo is located at Belmont Memorial Hall (next to Belmont School). On Thursdays we also use the nearby Hardwick Smith Lounge (Belmont Domain). We offer dedicated adult beginner classes and general classes for more advanced students
The Dojo provides a safe, fun and friendly environment for students to learn Aikido. Our focus is on cooperative training in a non-competitive and supportive environment. The Belmont Dojo follows normal Dojo Etiquette which will be explained to you on arrival.
Aikido is more than just a self-defence system. Training in Aikido improves coordination, balance and posture; stimulates the mind; builds self-confidence; improves flexibility; builds “core” strength, and lots more. Robert Nadeau Shihan describes Aikido as an “inner developmental art”. If you want to improve your wellness and build resilience -explore Aikido.
Anyone wishing to try Aikido is most welcome to come along to their first two classes for free. You need to be injury free and have some level of fitness to participate. Visiting Aikidoka are welcome after 3 October 2022 (free training for one class, contact Lyn if you are visiting).
