Visiting the Dojo

Students who belong to other Aikido dojos are welcome to visit with consent of their instructor. A $20 mat fee is requested. Please pre-register here: Class Registration non-Members

Students who are new to Aikido may attend their first Basic Class without fee.  Please email info@houstonaikido.com to arrange your first visit. Those wishing to observe class are welcome to do so but should email Sensei ahead of time.

Participants are expected to practice cooperatively and avoid resisting their partners, unless otherwise instructed by the sensei leading the class. They are likewise expected to train what that sensei is showing. For discussions of the proper roles of Uke and Nage see Saotome Sensei’s Harmony of Nature and Principles of Aikido (book and DVD). We ask that visitors read the ASU training manual, and in particular the rules of etiquette, before their visit.
