To get access to training after first three free classes, you pay a training fee for the full semester, 1400 SEK for employed, or 1000 SEK for students/unemployed. There is a 200 SEK annual dojo membership fee, payed once a year by all adults, and this provides you, among other things, with an injury insurance during training as well as when you go to and from the training. The fee can be paid in the dojo using credit card, or directly to our bank account. More information on our homepage (under Fees)
In the beginning it is fine just training in soft long pants suitable for physical activities, and short sleeved T-shirt. If you decide to continue we will order a gi, the training outfit typically used in japanese martial arts.
Aikido, what is it?
Aikido is a competition-free japanese martial art where we train together the techniques and exercises the instructor of the class goes through. We put a significant amount of time training how to safely receive the techniques and take a fall. We have special mats on the floor to dampen any impact to your body. The techniques are mainly defenses against various forms of grabs and strikes. The instructors will show you step-by-step how to perform each technique and there are usually plenty of seniors helping out as well. Later you will be able to train techniques with and against wooden sword and staff as these are traditional training tools in aikido. It will add a new dimension to your training for sure!
