Getting Started

Joining Hikari Dojo presents students with many learning opportunities. Beginning with the first class, new members are introduced to the Philosophy that underlies Aikido practice. New students are also introduced to the etiquette and customs commonly found in Aikido dojos in Japan and around the world. Special care is taken to ensure that new students receive personlized attention as they take their first steps on the path of Aikido. Mastery in Aikido is dependent upon a strong foundation, therefore beginners are carefully guided as they start stretching, learning how to roll, and perform new techniques.

All members must pay their dues on time or occur a late fee.
