How to get started
Aikido of New Orleans offers adult classes seven days a week. Once you become a member of Aikido of New Orleans, you are welcome to come to as many classes as you wish.
Dues are paid monthly, and there are no contracts.
Free class for beginners
If you’re curious about trying aikido but aren't ready to commit to becoming a member, you are welcome to participate for free in one of our weekly classes. You’ll see aikido in action and get a taste for what it’s all about. And if you want to come a few times to make up your mind, that's fine too.
Please bring comfortable workout clothes and arrive about 10 minutes early to a class on our schedule. Changing areas for men and women are available.
Once you get settled into your aikido training, you'll want to buy a uniform called a gi. Members may obtain uniforms through the dojo at cost—around $20 or so. Ask Sensei David Cody after one of his classes for details.
Uniforms may also be purchased online. If you purchase online, we recommend:
