(We just ask for your time and energy)
In order to make Aikido available to everone who wants to learn, including low-income local residents, our prices are below cost, and nobody is excluded because of inability to pay. We welcome contributions from supporters to allow us to continue this policy.
As a USAF member dojo, we adhere to USAF standards. For adult testing requirements, click here. Kids have separate requirements with lots of fun stripes and colored belts and NO KIDS TESTING FEES or contracts. You can't buy your belt; you'll earn it.
