How to Join Aikido


It's very easy to join an Aiki Kai Australia dojo.

It only takes three simple steps:

1. Select a dojo that is convenient for you to attend.  See our list of dojos here.

2. Go and watch a class, see if Aikido is for you. Ask the instructor as many questions as you want. Feel free to talk to the other students as well, see what they think. 
If you haven't done Aikido before you MUST watch a class before you can train.

3. If you like what you see and hear, you can join up immediately or, if you are still a little unsure we offer a once only 3 month introductory membership. Most dojos also offer introductory lessons to help new students settle in.

Our annual membership fee structure is the green area on the right, there is also a mat fee set by your local dojo.

_____________________________________

Two levels of membership when you join 

We have two levels of membership, an Introductory Membership which is for three months only and comes at a cost premium. You can only take this out once. You also have the choice to become a Full Member which is renewed annually on the anniversary date of joining.

Opportunity to see what it's like before becoming a full member 

You cannot train if you are not a financial member, this is to do with legal indemnity cover, but we do try to give you plenty of opportunity to see if you like Aikido before becoming a full member. Ask at your local dojo. National membership fees cover things like legal indemnity insurance, so both you and the organisation are protected should a litigation occur, essential in today's world. The fees also cover necessary national administrative costs to maintain services to the members, like this website for instance and funding national instruction, plus some personal insurance for you.

How to join

Once you've observed a class and think Aikido is for you, on the right is a blue button which will take you to our New Member Application forms, when you complete it you are becoming a member of Aiki Kai Australia as well as registering to be a student of The Sugano Foundation. The association is our legal body and the Foundation maintains the 'quality control' of our training.

If you are filling out the paper version, complete Sections 1 & 2 of the Membership Application form and take it with you to the dojo when you are about to have your first lesson on the mat. Your instructor will tell you what to do from there.

We hope you enjoy training Aikido with us!
