Ei Mei Kan

Coming to the Dojo

Our Aikido classes cover the fundamentals and are accessible at any level, so when you come to the dojo you can participate in a class as a free taster straight away or, if preferred, you can observe one. Please arrive fifteen minutes early so that we can show you around the dojo and when practicing wear long comfortable trousers and a T-shirt. Note that we practice barefooted.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.
