“It is neccessary to develop a strategy that utilizes all the physical conditions and elements that are directly at hand.  The best strategy relies upon an unlimited set of responses.”
~Morihei Ueshiba

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.

“Joining the Victoria Aikido Centre was one of the best things I have done in my life. The movements and exercises we do have allowed me to continue working in a very physical job without the usual injuries that plague nurses. I am now 61, I still work full-time as a critical care nurse and practice 3 to 4 times a week. I truly believe I would be looking to retire as so many of my cohorts have, if it were not for my time at the dojo”
