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
The mat fee is for visiting students from other Aikido dojos only. The monthly membership for our students is $80. Membership subscriptions are set up in-person in the dojo. Potential students may attend their first class without fee before deciding to join the dojo. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your first visit. Those wishing to observe class are welcome to do so but should email Sensei ahead of time. Visitors must sign in as guests at the front desk.
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.
