Herbert Aikido Oamaru is an Aikido dojo located 15 minutes south of Oamaru and is currently based in the Herbert Hall. We have been operating since 11th April 2015.
Aikido is a peaceful martial art that uses circular movements to neutralize an attack. Aikido emphasises effective techniques that do not depend on size or strength, so is suitable for all ages, women and men. As a non–competitive martial art, Aikido is learnt co-operatively with training partners. This allows the application of martial art techniques in a safe, non-aggressive and controlled environment.

Anyone wishing to try aikido is most welcome to come along. The first three lessons for any new person are free.
