The ANU Aikido Club (Aiki Kai Australia) is affiliated with the internationally recognised organisation for Aikido in Australia. It provides a gateway to the national and international world of Aikido.
Aikido is a non-competitive martial art which relies on respect, trust and cooperation between training partners. People of all ages and skill levels can train together harmoniously and effectively. It uses a “self-defence” method of training – training partners take turns to provide an attack or to practise the defence for the particular technique being studied. Aikido relies on timing, distance, direction, balance and movement rather than on strength to perform the techniques.
The Aikido Club welcomes ANU students at any stage during the semester. We have mixed-level training with a focus on beginners at all our ANU classes. There will be experienced club members to train with you and they will train at your level.
You can start by coming to watch a class and talking to the instructor and the senior students. You will see what we do and how we train, and you can make an informed decision about joining us. You can then join the Aikido Club and our national organisation (Aiki Kai Australia) and come onto the mat to train with us.
There will be details of membership and training fees at the dojo.
