  • Aikido for the Blind / Sight impaired  (see info in this article)

We have experience with several sight impaired students, and we take in beginners any time. To begin with, we work one-on-on to get comfortable with the dojo (training hall), with falling (on soft mats!),  contact work (a bit like “ledsagerteknikken”, but facing each other and with more motion) and learn the basics of aikido. Once your confidence level rises, you will start training together with others in the regular classes.

  • workshops to develop aikido for movement-impaired
    • by appointment to begin with
    • the aim is to join regular classes
  • workshops to connect physical therapy (mobility training) and aikido practice as mobility training
    • by appointment only for now
  • Falling classes (by appointment)

  1. Now that our instructors are back from Japan, it’s back to the regular schedule (which is just below the temporary one). As of coming monday (20. oct.), training for beginners is monday, wednesday and friday from 20-21.30.

    (Although, we might keep the early training on fridays, but in that case I’ll let you know, and it will be on the web page).

    We are in the process of editing a “contact” page to be posted here, in the mean time, I’ll write you an email, so you’ll have our email, ciao!

    (update on 3.1.09: there is now a contact page in the right column menu)
    (update on 15.06.09: check the schedule page for updated practice hours!)

  2. Hei!
    Var på treningsenteret idag, og sto og boksa på boksesekken når ein kar i frå iran kom bort og viste nokon enkle tekniker,(han blei sikkert så provisert siden eg bare slo på den). Men eg blei ganske inspirert og syns det så ut som ein bra sport, me han gjekk på taikwando eller noko sånt, men han anbefalte også aikido.

    Så eg lurer på om eg kunne ha komt en gang å ivertfall prøvd? =)
    (Er 16 år i november.)

  3. Hei, Tore, det er bare å komme innom en mandag, onsdag (trening kl 20-21.30) eller fredag (18-20 19-20.30). Kom litt tidligere så vi får snakket med deg litt før bi begynner. Ha på ledige klær, som f.ex joggebukse og langermet t-skjorte. Det er flere ungdom som nylig har begynt, så du blir ikke alene!
    Velkommen til oss!

    (edited 15.6.09: see correct practice hours on the schedule page)

  4. Hei.Aikido ser ganske spennende ut, så når starter neste sesong? Er 16 år og har trent karate (Chito-Ryu) i ca 3 år. Min sensei sa at det var mange teknikker som er like, men mer kasting på Aikido, stemmer dette?

    Hilsen Ruben

  5. Hei Ruben, vi velkommer nybegynnere fortloepende, trenger ikke aa vente til hoesten. Det er naa sommertid saa det er bare 3 treninger i uken frem til august en gang.
    Det er korrekt at det finnes en del felles teknikker og at det er mye mer kasting (og laaseteknikker).
    Kom innom og snakk med instruktoerene, se paa eller proev selv! (se paa timeplanen paa nettsiden for mest oppdatert timeplan)
    Hilsen, JuShinKan Aikido

  9. Hei igjen 🙂 vil takke for en kjempe kjekk time i dag… men har noen flere sprsmål som jeg glemte å spørre.
    1. Hvor kan jeg få kjøpt en slik drakt eller er det noe som jeg bør vente med?
    2. Hvor mange timer kan jeg ta gratis?
    3. Hvordan blir jeg medlem? Må jeg registrere meg på nett eller kan jeg ta det en time?
    klem Charlotte 🙂

  11. Hei! Min datter og en venninne lurer på å begynne på AIKIDO. Jeg lurer på om det har stratet opp Junir klasse på onsdager? De er 14 år begge to.

  12. Hey, I dropped by to see if I could join a session today Thursday around 21 but nobody was there. I suppose you are all on seminar in Bergen ? When is a good time for me to try practicing with you ? I have practiced one year at Katsugen Kai (Tsuda School) in Amsterdam and am eager to pursue experience in aikido. Please let me know, thanks !

  14. Hei ! Så reklame for dere i et hefte på SUS og ble litt fasinert, vet ikke mye om sporten men liker tanken på at det ikke er konkuranser, jeg er 40 år og har astma så kondis er ikke min greie .. Vil dette være noe jeg kan takle ?
    Mvh Liv

  15. Hei Liv, Jaaaa, Aikido er for alle – vi tar hensyn til begrensninger og utvider mulighetene! Kom å prøv et par ganger! (har sendt deg en lengre melding på FB)

  16. Hallo! jeg er 16 år og har drevet med Karate (Chito Ryu) i mellom 7 og 10 år. Men begynner å få for mye fritid. Har veldig lyst til å utvide reportoaret i samme slengen. Jeg tenker å hoppe innom å prøve meg. Skal jeg bare komme å se da?

  17. Hei Ørjan, Veldig hyggelig at du har lyst å prøve aikido! Vi har flere med karatebakgrunn hos oss!
    Joda, bare kom innom, men best å trene med heller enn å bare se på. Gratis prøvetime eller to!
    Vi har også en del ungdommer, de kommer mest på mandag – som er en god dag å begynne på! Ring gjerne for mer info: 98250628!
