Membership Dues

header_membershipdues-fwMembership at a traditional martial arts school is more than standard gym membership. Students develop a relationship with instructors and fellow students, becoming a part of a community… and that community of junior and senior training partners is what makes training possible. Membership dues are one way we contribute to maintaining that shared community of practice.

*Aikido adults and children pay a one-time $35 registration fee to join.
