Family Memberships

At the Victoria Aikido Centre, we strive to support families and communities by offering a special family rate. The whole family can train at the Victoria Aikido at a discounted price.


  • First Member (Membership Fee and Practice Fee in highest category)

    $ 60

  • Second Member (Membership Fee plus half the Practice Fee)

    $ 40

  • Additional Members (Membership Fee only)

    $ 20

Monthly Dues consist of two components: Membership Fees of $20 and Practice Fees ($50, $40, or $25 depending on the classification).  As long as you wish to maintain continuous membership, the $20 Membership Fee is due even if you are not practicing.  If your membership lapses, the Initiation Fee must be paid again when you rejoin.

Annual Dues are payable to the Canadian Aikido Federation (CAF) and BC Aikido Federation (BCAF).

“At the Victoria Aikido Centre, we have witnessed numerous other individuals, both adults and children, who clearly benefit from the same sort of training, all in a calm, non-aggressive manner that is not always found in the martial arts environment”
