Anyone can learn Aikido
Your safety is our number one concern
Kihon Aikido Melbourne is a wonderful community that supports each individual to learn and grow in a nurturing way. I have been doing Aikido here for less than a year and have already made so many great friends. Michael Sensei is passionate, patient, and such a skilled aikidoka and teacher. He takes people's safety and wellbeing very seriously. I am so glad I have found his dojo.
Kihon Aikido has provided me with a daily dose of mindfulness, physical activity, and social interaction, which have undoubtedly contributed to my overall wellbeing and quality of life. I am grateful for having discovered this incredible martial art and look forward to continuing on this journey of self-improvement and personal growth.
At Kihon Aikido, I feel at home. The instructors are patient and knowledgeable, emphasizing attention to detail and strong basics. Training is serious yet supportive, creating a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. My journey here taught me about Aikido, connections, and how to stay grounded, both on and off the mat.
