Frequently Asked Question
Q1. I haven’t practiced Aikido. Is that OK ?
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）.
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.
You can order a Budo wear at this dojo.
Q4. I want a hakama skirt (袴）.
If you had a black belt, you can wear hakama skirt.
Usually, you need some years practices to attain a black belt.
