Joining the Dojo

No martial arts background or experience is necessary. You just need to be interested in trying this dynamic art! Even though Aikido is quite physical and requires stamina, no need to worry about that; our classes are demanding but we always respect everyone’s abilities and limitations. You will build up gradually through training.

Aikido Startup package

For new students, Montérégie Aikikai offers an Aikido Startup package. This package includes a training uniform, registration, and one month of unlimited Aikido classes, including access to our specially designed Fundamentals classes. These Fundamentals classes are an excellent way to start your Aikido practice by building a foundation that will prepare you for further training.

Regular membership dues are $125 per month or $75 for teens. The Aikido Startup package is offered for $195, or $145 for teens, and includes one month of unlimited classes, registration, and a high-quality training uniform, a $255 value. 

No experience is necessary. Everyone starts out as a beginner! Be sure to come to the dojo before your first class to register, meet the instructors, and observe a class. For any questions, or if you are ready to get started, contact us.

What to bring to your first class...
  • Loose, comfortable clothing (jogging pants and a short or long-sleeved t-shirt are perfect.)
  • A bag to hold your street clothes.
  • A bottle of water.
  • A small towel or face cloth (you will sweat a lot!)
What to do after your first class…
  • Drink water and stretch your body.
  • Take a hot bath to relax your muscles.
  • Get some rest (a good night of sleep, 7-9 hours.)
  • Come back for more!
