We invite anyone to attend class. First, we recommend that you arrange to observe a class and speak with the students and Instructors. There is no charge for observing class. We often recommend observation because it allows a prospective student to see what class is like without pressure to participate. Prospective students who want to participate in a class may wear comfortable clothing (like athletic wear). As a courtesy to inquiring students, Aikido South extends 3 complimentary classes to evaluate the dojo.
If you decide to join the dojo you will be asked to fill out a Training Waiver with your general information such as address, phone number, etc. You will return your waiver along with you first month’s dues. The dojo offers convenient online payment options for dues. There is no term contract involved. You may resign your membership from the dojo at any time by simply giving thirty days notice.
The first few months of training are often difficult because you are making room in your schedule and your budget for training. We strongly recommend new students set a three-month goal of regular attendance to adjust to training.
