We require that students have either trained in Aikido or have watched one of our classes before training in a class.
We offer up to two trial classes for $2 per session – but fill out an Aiki-Kai Australia application form for insurance purposes. These trials do not enrol you in the club.

Joining Aiki-Kai Australia
If you want to join the Club after watching or doing a trial class, you need to apply for an Aiki-Kai Australia membership at New members. Existing members can renew their membership at Renewals. Please present a receipt before training. The instructors can help with the type of membership you apply for.
Membership is compulsory. It provides you with some insurance, and allows you to attend classes at our other dojos, attend training events and take grading examinations. These are the additional costs for Aiki-Kai Australia membership. Take care to use the correct membership categories. If you are unsure of the correct category ask the instructors or a senior student. Alternatively, text Michael on 0407-357-311.
