Contact Us – Aikido Community Tweed Heads
We have a permanent matted Dojo which is air-conditioned on the ground floor of the Tweed Heads Sport Club. We are a non for profit and all fees collected go towards supporting the club and it’s members.
Can I just turn up and train? Yes, all are welcome with the right attitude which is beginner’s mind and respect. Prior to training you will be given the student code of conduct sheet to read and sign. Successful risk management is best achieved when all students adopt a spirit of responsibility in regards to safety.
What will be expected of me? Beginner’s mind, respect, not being under the influence of any drugs or alcohol and Hygiene. Training starts off slowly and depending upon the student gains momentum at the student’s appropriate level. There is never any pressure to do anything, it is always the student’s choice which is respected by all.
Cost? Fees $15 per class casual rate reducing to $10 per class for every class attended where you attended the previous class. Once a year association fee (Covers insurance) $20 (Trial for 2 weeks before paying for association fee)
What to wear when starting? On the mat when you are a beginner, track suit pants and tee shirt is acceptable. Shorts and singlet would not be suitable. If you continue training a white Gi which we can supply at a reduced rate is worn. We are located inside the Tweed Heads Sports Club, so normal Club dress code is relevant until you get to the change rooms, which means Smart casual attire.
I have an injury or medical condition can I still train? You would need to speak to the Sensei regarding training with an injury. To start off it is not advisable while you are in the early stages, however seniors that have adopted Aikido principles find this much easier. For medical conditions we need to have a Doctor’s clearance that said the benefits of Aikido training is well known for rehabilitation and general health and well being.
