HOW TO JOIN
Joining is easy. Newcastle Aikido encourages new students to take up beginners' packages to help reduce costs and firm-up your commitment.
NEW PEOPLE ARE EXPECTED TO VISIT THE DOJO AND WATCH A CLASS BEFORE SIGNING UP.
Fees are charged on a monthly basis in return for which you can attend as many classes as you have the time and energy to attend.
FEES & BEGINNERS' PACKAGES:
Beginners packages are the best way to get started - it encourages commitment and will save you some money. The packages includes a Keigogi (training uniform), membership/insurance (12-mths), and 3 months worth of unlimited beginner training and attendance to all in-house seminars.
The Beginners package allows the student to attend beginners classes as well as sword training and Zazen meditation so they can get a taste of all of the classes offered at Saku Shin Kan dojo. This can be up to 13 sessions a week and after three months the student will have a well-informed appreciation of the training.
We also have 6 & 12 month packages offering discounts to regular students or those keen to sign up to a longer-term commitment.
