Welcome to Brisbane Aikikai
We are a well established, expanding, open-spirited dojo and we welcome beginners, new members and visitors from all over the world.
Interested in Learning Aikido?
Aikido is a non-aggressive, non-competitive Japanese martial art and indeed a path that will provide you with an effective self-defense capability, develop your mind, body and spirit, enhancing all aspects of life. We train in a friendly, caring environment, by sharing knowledge, experience, energy and dedicating our time in the overall pursuit of perfecting our Aikido.
Join our Beginners Program
If you would like to see if Aikido is for you, our 4 week induction program introduces you to the basics of Aikido and provides a platform for your ongoing participation in any of our weekly classes.
Brisbane Aikikai is a non-profit organization, established more than 22 years ago. Our main dojo is conveniently located in central Brisbane and we are affiliated with Aikido Shinryukan, based in New Zealand under the Chief Instructor of Aikido Shinryukan Nobuo Takase Shihan (7th Dan) with whom we are greatly privileged to be associated with.
Our club has a great wealth of senior instructors (three 5th Dan, two 4th Dan and four 3rd Dan), most of whom have many years experience in teaching and practicing the art, not just in Australia but other parts of the world. Our affiliation with Aikido Shinryukan links us directly to Hombu Dojo in Japan and enables our students to undertake regular kyu and yudansha gradings that are internationally recognised.
