What You Need For Your First Class

(All interested students must join a sports club on IM Leagues and complete their Health History Questionnaire before they can practice with any club. Click to join the Aikido Club)

  • Aikido is dynamic, so you need to wear athletic clothes that allow you to move freely and cover your knees.
  • Aikido requires students to touch one another (e.g. grabbing a wrist), so to keep yourself and others from minor injury, remove jewelry and trim your nails (fingers and toes).
  • NU Aikido shares space with other organizations, so we have to prepare practice space before each class. Come early (~15 minutes) to meet club members and help set up.
  • Aikido is a martial art, but one that emphasizes cooperation and respect between all students and teachers, so come with an open mind and joyful heart.
