Newcomers are welcome at any time throughout the season. In the beginning, wearing comfortable sports clothes with long pants is sufficient, or a white martial arts suit if available. During the Aikido training usually English is spoken, however Dutch is also possible. There is no Aikido training for children and adolescents. All our venues are fitted with permanent mats, hence no lugging of mats is needed before the training. However, being on time – barring exceptions – is appreciated and is necessary when joining for the first time.
