Starting aikido

Six-week beginners’ courses

Our beginners’ course over six sessions will introduce you to all the basics of aikido, including stretching, rolling, falling safely, basic throwing and pinning techniques, and dojo etiquette. The six-week course should satisfy your curiosity and help you decide whether aikido is for you.

Our next beginners’ course starts on Monday 25 March 2019 (7.30–9pm).

The cost is €40 for six classes.

You can wear any clothing that’s comfortable for exercise—a tracksuit pants and sweatshirt are probably ideal.
