Bringing the spirit of Aikido to the Ryde, Epping & Parramatta community

Getting Started

How Do I Join?

If you’re interested in training there are 3 easy steps to get started:

  1. Come along and watch a class on a Tuesday or Thursday from 7.00 to 8.30pm. If you have any questions for the instructors you can ask before or after class.
  2. Download the Membership Forms here. Complete these beforehand but don’t sign just yet. Bring them along to the dojo at least 30 minutes before a class to sign in front of a witness, and present them to the instructor.  (Please do not turn up at 7.00pm and expect to join the class as our instructors will be busy teaching).
  3. Choose from one of our New Members Starter Packs:
  • The $99 Starter Pack includes: a new dogi (pants, jacket and belt) + a copy of the book “The Art of Peace” by Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido + 3 weeks unlimited training + a $20 discount on your annual membership. (Total value of over $195.)
  • The $69 Starter Pack (if you have your own dogi), includes: a copy of the book “The Art of Peace” by Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido + 3 weeks unlimited training + a $20 discount on your annual membership. (Total value of over $130.)
  • The Basic Starter (if you have your own dogi) pay the annual membership ($90) and the class fee ($15 adult or $8 student/ hardship) OR monthly class fee ($80 adult /$45 student).

Please Note:

  • If you are a student or unemployed you will need to bring your ID card with you the first time.
  • If you are under 18 years of age a parent or guardian must also observe a class with you.
  • After the first 3 weeks, students will need to pay the balance of the full membership fee. If you need to pay in installments, please discuss a payment plan with the Instructor.
