Beginner Aikido Program for Adults


The Beginner Program
The Beginner Aikido Program for Adults introduces new practitioners to the basic concepts and techniques of Aikido body arts and Aikido weapons.
● FOR WHO The Program is specifically tailored for adults who have no previous experience and are interested in trying out Aikido.
● FOCUS With an emphasis on safety, beginners learn the fundamentals of Aikido practice including etiquette, footwork, body movement, posture, positioning, basic techniques and falling safely, all under the supervision of senior instructors.
● BENEFITS Among many other benefits, Aikido practice improves health, increases flexibility, sharpens reflexes, enhances coordination, improves body alignment and promotes relaxation. And of course it's a fun and excellent way to learn self-defense and the most modern of Japanese martial arts.

I am interested in starting. How much does it cost?

  • 3 months of unlimited classes in the program
  • A free Aikido uniform
  • Examination for 6th kyu in Aikido
  • All for $250 (regular price $340 plus cost of uniform)

  • in cash or by cheque at the dojo,
  • by e-transfer to torontoaikikai[at]gmail.com, or
  • through Paypal or a credit card by using the "Donate" button below.


Please note:
  • Most of the time the Paypal donation / credit card process works just fine, but, every now and then it fails. We have found that this is not a problem with the button above but with Paypal itself. If you encounter this problem, the fix that has worked in every instance is to try again later. Apologies beforehand for the inconvenience if you encounter this erratic behaviour.
  • Please do not send payment via Paypal to the email address above as it only works for e-transfers. For payments with Paypal or with a credit card please use the Donate button above. Thanks.
