Beginners

Hello!

Thank you for expressing interest in our beginning Aikido classes!

We have begun to open our dojo to new students with small class sizes to increase safety, enjoyment, and learning.

Our focus will be:

Small Class Instruction for a Big Experience!

Explore Better Balance, Stretching, Control and Enhanced Self-Confidence!

Limited Time Offer – Two Free Trial Sessions for First-Timers

Beginners’ classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings throughout each month. For first-timers, the first week of classes is free so you can see if aikido is right for you. If you are interested in checking out our dojo and trying aikido, please reserve a spot in week #1 of our upcoming beginners’ cycles. These will be held:

  • Septembere: Tuesday (9/6) and Thursday (9/8) evenings from 5:15 PM to 7:00 PM.
  • October: Tuesday (10/4) and Thursday (10/6) evenings from 5:15 PM to 7:00 PM.
  • November: Tuesday (11/1) and Thursday (11/3) evenings from 5:15 PM to 7:00 PM.

o If you choose to continue beginner’s classes, a dojo member can assist you with the

process after week #1 of your beginner’s class cycle.

o These classes will be kept small for your health, safety, and enjoyment. As such, space is

filled on a “first come, first served” basis.

To reserve your spot, please email info@nippon-kan.org or call 303-595-8256. We will reach out to confirm your reservation.
