The club is re-opening in a limited capacity from September but not taking new members at present. If you email us your details we can update you when the situation changes.

Beginners who wish to learn aikido are welcome to start training at any time. They must commit to a course of eight classes during which they receive individual attention. This course costs 80 euro.

Upon completion of the beginners course, if you choose to become members of Aikikai Rathmines, you are required to pay the annual contribution of 35 euro. From then on it is a drop in fee structure and you only pay when you attend. The regular class fee is 10 euro for two hours training.

We currently only accept students over the age of 18.

Please note: Refunds are not available on class fees, but classes can be deferred for up to six months if necessary.

If you do not have a training suit please wear track suit bottoms (with no zips) and a short-sleeved tshirt. No sleeveless vests.

Hakama may only be worn by yudansha.
