Beginner FAQ

What classes are good for me to join?

Aikido NT offers classes in Alice Springs & Darwin. Some dojos offer classes that are  especially aimed at basics and beginners classes, but every class welcomes new starters. Please see our Class Times for these details.

How much does it cost?

There are two fees to consider – national membership fees and training fees.

The national membership fee is required to be paid up front before training can begin. 

There are two types of membership fees – a once off, 3 month introductory fee for new members and an annual ongoing fee for members. If you wish to continue training past the introductory period, your annual membership will start on that date.

Membership covers all dojos in Victoria and Australia.

Training fees are generally paid at each class.

Is it necessary to buy a uniform?

A long sleeved T Shirt and tracksuit pants are suitable to wear in the first month of training. No jewellery is allowed. Refer also to the New Student Information Handbook for further information.

A uniform is a financial investment. Should you wish to purchase one, Aikido Australia offers them through our online shop

Do I need to book a class?

A booking is not required in order to watch a class. Visitors are required to watch a class before their first training session. The instructor will come and talk with you either during or after the class.
