This 5 week low cost course is designed to introduce you to the etiquette, culture, techniques, and classes of a traditional Aikido school. If you were ever curious about trying the martial art of Aikido and wanted a taste of all the benefits it had to offer but didn’t want to start with the full Aikido program, then this is the course for you! An introductory course is also a great gift option for the Japanese culture enthusiast in your life!

Please note that the course must be paid for prior to the start of the first class in order to guarantee a spot and a uniform. After signing up, you will be sent an email with instructions on payment, introducing the instructors and the Long Island Aikikai, details on what to expect during the course, and fun tidbits on Japanese culture and Aikido.

If you do not receive the email, please check your spam folder. If you still can’t find it, please contact the dojo for a copy.
