Instructions for the first practice session


When you decide to join practice sessions

You can start practising aikido by turning up at any practice session. Please come to the location 15 minutes before the session starts and ask for the instructor in charge.

Take comfortable clothing (e.g., sweatpants and a tee shirt), a towel, and a pair of slippers.
Participants wash their feet before the session, and you will need the slippers to keep your feet clean on your way to the practice mat. Long hair must be bound, and any jewellery etc. be removed before the session.
