Copenhagen Aiki Shuren Dojo

Copenhagen Aiki Shuren Dojo – Nørrebro Branch Dojo

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

Mondays: 19:00 – 20:30 (starting from 7. September)
Wednesdays: 20:00 – 21:30 (now active)

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) and Aiki Jo (wooden staff) techniques of traditional aikido. 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.

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!
