Become a Member

The dojo is more than a just place to learn self defense, get in shape, or spend time after work; it's a community of people studying a traditional art form in a sacred space. We work together so we can be more engaged, polished, and awake. It's a place where we refine our character, perfect our form, and shed our ego; a forge if you will. However, instead of heating metals, we are heating up our human potential. 

You will see people training intensely. You will also see people smiling. We'd like to welcome you to the Multnomah Aikikai community.

Visiting Aikido practitioners

Mat Fee, suggested contribution, $20 per day
Members of Aikido dojos across the globe are welcome to train with us regardless of affiliation. When planning a visit, it is traditional to bring a letter of introduction from your home instructor and offer a mat fee each day when visiting a dojo. If you will be able to join class for more than just a few days, please let us know!
