Riai Aikido Learning Centre – Auckland


The Riai Aikido Learning Centre is a permanent dojo where mats are down all the time, offering specialized classes for different ranks/abilities, togther with topics and seminars on a consistent basis. The teaching staff at the Riai Aikido Learning Centre is one of the most experienced in New Zealand with over 75 years combined experience in Aikido. We offer classes 3 days a week, with a schedule that also includes monthly seminars. Visitors are encouraged to come in and watch a class, and ask questions of any instructors or students.

The Riai Aikido Learning Centre is a dojo where students learn at their own pace, where we look at Second Level Training and explore the communication of energy in waza or techniques. Students who undertake learning at the Riai Aikido Learning Centre have the option of completing a learning based tool that shows what is the best learning style for them, enabling the teacher to match appropriate learning styles to individual students.
