Registration for our April aikido seminar with Michael Friedl is now open!

Aikido for kids

Kids love aikido

Our children’s classes are for ages 6 and up. Kids 13 and older may start aikido in the adult class, depending on their maturity level. Emphasis is on good discipline and healthy attitude while enjoying a fun and rigorous practice. Drop by any of our children’s classes to watch or participate.

Aikido for adults

Aikido is fun

Our adult classes focus on proper technique and mental focus as well as overall fitness and flexibility. Calgary Aikikai welcomes persons of any age, gender or ability. New students may come and watch any class, and may also participate in up to four classes free of charge to see how they like it.

Calgary Aikikai

Aikido is fun

Since 1980, Calgary Aikikai has trained hundreds of students in this martial art that is both a practical self-defence and form of creative movement. We believe that the best way to learn is through enjoyable and spirited practice, with an emphasis on traditional techniques.

2nd Kyu promotion for Lee Brandt
Andrew, Todd, Lee, and Chris

A big congratulations goes out for the successful promotion of Lee Brandt to second-kyu. At Calgary Aikikai the only belt you purchase is your white belt. It comes with your dogi when you start. The brown belt is property of the dojo and on loan. When you receive your black belt, it is a gift from the dojo. Congrats Lee and well earned.
