Proper Martial Arts Protocols


The dues of $35.00 is payable each month! If you expect to be away from class for a month or longer please notify me by E-Mail. Unless prior arrangements are agreed upon by both parties and made via E-Mail or in writing --- no exception will be made. No exams will be given to the student if the dues are not paid. Permission on the mat will be denied.


No matter what the climate is we must come in physical contact with one another in practice. Personal hygiene is a requirement at all times on the mat in all Aikido dojos! Remember to practice physical cleanliness and come to class in a washed gi. All students not practicing proper personal hygiene will be first asked to remove themselves off the mat, until the matter is resolved.
