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.
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 Tuesday classes held 6:00-7:15 PM. You’ll see aikido in action and get a taste for what it’s all about. If Tuesday is not a convenient day for you, please contact the dojo to ask about coming on a different day for a free class. 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. Changing areas for men and women are available.
