Aiki Kai Australia launched its national attendance app at Summer School in early 2023. The new app allows for all dojos to log the daily attendance of every AKA student plus attendance at state and national events! 

What's more it allows everyone to see their own training record and even supplies a personal report of how many training days each student has accrued since their last grading. Go here for more details of how to download the app plus PDF and video guides on how to use it.

What is 
Aikido?


The Japanese martial art of Aikido is a comprehensive system of throwing, joint-locking and pinning techniques based on a philosophy of non-aggression. Aiki Kai Australia is an association based on the style of a traditional Japanese martial school.

Aikido is not a sport

HOW TO JOIN AIKIDO


Aikido has many physical and psychological benefits. The versatility of the art makes it ideal for students of all ages.

DOJOS 
    WITH 
      KIDS 
CLASSES

Aikido really does try to train without the over use of physical strength, which is the reason why males and females can work together equally.

When joining a martial school the student takes on a completely different attitude to exercise than if you were joining a gym.





AIKIDO MORAL CODE


Aikido is a Way

There is commitment and there is obligation
Do not abuse or misuse the art of Aikido
Study carefully, honestly and humbly
Respect your seniors 
Take care of your juniors 
                                   Seiichi Sugano 8th Dan
