Frequently Asked Question

Q1. I haven’t practiced Aikido. Is that OK ?

Answer.
No, problem. Aikido is flexible Budo. Both young and old can practice it. So if you could be not really sure about stamina, we recommend basic exercises ( 受け身:UKEMI, absorbing work).

Q2. I don’t have a Budo wear – Dogi (道着).

Answer.
There is no need to prepare a Budo wear at first. Tatami floor(畳: straw-mat) could scratch your knee or elbow, so you might need to wearing long-sleeved T-shirt and long pants ( protect knee & elbow).

Q3. I want a Budo wear.

Answer.
You can order a Budo wear at this dojo.

Q4. I want a hakama skirt (袴).

Answer.
If you had a black belt, you can wear hakama skirt.
Usually, you need some years practices to attain a black belt.
