Beginners are always welcome!
Six different black belt instructors, led by 6th Dan Elizabeth Dinowitz, alternate teaching days at the dojo. We make a special effort to help beginning students feel welcome and to give them a sound foundation in Aikido basics.

NEW BEGINNER'S CLASS STARTS FEBRUARY 3rd
The new beginner's session will run Tuesdays and Thursdays for 16 classes (February 3th through March 26). We will meet from 6 PM until 7 PM on those days. The fee for the series is $100. This is a great introduction to aikido! Although anyone can join at any time during the year and take classes, these beginner sessions are a particularly good time to start. Instruction will focus on the basic movements and core principles of aikido and will gradually progress through the basic techniques. Please call for more information or come ready for class on February 3rd. You may purchase a gi (practice uniform) from the dojo — a limited supply is available — or bring your own loose-fitting clothing appropriate for exercise on the mat. Call (603) 357-2989.
