Copenhagen Aiki Shuren Dojo – Nørrebro Branch Dojo

We have now established a branch of our Copenhagen Aiki Shuren Dojo in Nørrebro, Copenhagen.

We adhere strictly to the rules set by the government regarding correct distancing and proper hygiene.

Training day and time: Wednesday; 20:00 – 21:30 

The classes are open for all levels. All classes are open for trial lessons.

Due to the Corona Virus situation, we are at this time solely training the Aiki Ken (wooden sword), Aiki Jo (wooden staff), Ukemi (rolling and falling practice) and basic Aikido techniques with no contact. This is a very good way of learning the basic movements and principles of aikido while maintaining the necessary social distancing during training.

People coming for trial lessons may borrow the necessary training tools when joining the trial lesson. Please contact us to arrange a trial lesson. See the contact information below.

Location: Korsgadehallen, Korsgade 29, 2200 N Nørrebro

The harmonious nature of the training environment and the defensive, non-competitive, non-aggressive attitude in practice makes for a very pleasurable atmosphere during training.

Aikido can enrich our lives on many levels.

Come and experience it yourself!
