There are widely recognized benefits to be derived from practicing Aikido.

The focus is on basic techniques, movements, philosophy and etiquette.  Beginners must attend 12 introductory classes to be awarded a Level 1 Certificate and another 12 introductory classes to be awarded a Level 2 Certificate respectively.  Upon receiving their Level 2 Certificate, beginners are offered full (regular) membership at Victoria Aikido Centre, and may attend any classes appropriate for their level of proficiency.  Regular classes are offered 7 days a week.

“In the eight months since my daughter has been training at the Victoria Aikido Centre, I have seen her confidence grow not just in the practice but in her person. My daughter suffers from anxiety and Aikido is unique in that it allows her to excel without the stress of performing which raises her anxiety. She loves Aikido and is very keen to continue practicing and growing in Aikido.”
