  1. Posting questions about technique
  2. Schedule questions
  3. Sharing interesting videos or photos
Mudansha Booklet
Kyu-rank Aikido students may use a Mudansha booklet to keep a record of their seminar attendances and kyu tests.
Leaving Articles at the Dojo
If you intend to practice Aikido for an extended period of time it is worth while investing in:
  • Zories (dojo slippers) - kept at the shoe rack in the lounge.
  • Personal Weapons - can be kept on the personal weapons rack
You are asked to take your weapons and zories with you if you intend to be absent from the dojo for a period greater than one month. Members are asked to take Gi's home on a daily basis (do not leave them overnight).
Duty Roster
As a volunteer run organisation where not even our instructors are paid for their hard work, it is the responsibility of every member to see to the upkeep of the dojo. As such, weekly cleaning duties are assigned to each class. Spread over the large number of classes we offer, the actual amount of work per class should be in the 5 to 10 minute range, so not much.

Cleaning Schedule 2017. A copy of this is posted at the dojo.
