The best way for you to decide if Aikido is right for you is to join us on the mat for a free class. This will afford you the opportunity to see first-hand our welcoming class atmosphere and dedication for new students. Please note, the minimum age to train is 15.
You should plan to arrive 15 minutes early in order for introductions and to go over the necessary paperwork. Please wear loose-fitting clothing that allows for a dynamic range of movement. No jeans or shorts, please.
Once you have made the decision to join our dojo, please be prepared to write a check for the first month's practice fee and annual membership fees made payable to Aikido of Suenaka-Ha Indiana. Monthly dues are not pro-rated and are due by the first Sunday of each month. No contracts.
Students are required to practice in an all-white Aikido gi. Other equipment you will need is a practice wooden sword called a bokken and a wooden staff called a jo.
Our class structure is quite simple, everyone practices in the open class format. The subject matter is not practiced according to one's rank. Your training will be commensurate with your level of experience. Everyone was a beginner once!
Guests are welcome to practice at Aikido of Suenaka-Ha Indiana. We do ask that visitors refrain from teaching their own style and follow our rules of dojo etiquette.
Please feel free to Contact Us if you have any additional questions.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
