“It is necessary 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.”

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 adult classes are offered 7 days a week.

“Our daughter attends the Victoria Aikido Centre several times a week and is physically much more active as a result. We can see her self-esteem growing as she moves her way up the various belt levels. It's also a great way for her to form friendships with other students who have a similar philosophy.”
