Schedule & Fees

The Prairie Aikikai practices on a regular schedule two days each week:


 Mondays 7:00pm - 8:00pm General Practice Class
  8:00pm - 9:00pm Intermediate/Advanced/Weapons Class
Thursdays 7:00pm - 8:00pm General Practice Class
  8:00pm - 9:00pm Intermediate/Advanced/Weapons Class


In addition to our regular Monday/Thursday schedule the Prairie Aikikai routinely schedules special focused practices (usually for two hours on select Saturdays or Sundays). We also participate in seminars at other Aikido schools in our region, visits by guest instructors, and trips to other martial arts events. Consult the calendar in the dojo, or talk with one of the instructors, for specific dates, times, and locations


NOTE: This calendar is subject to change. The dojo is closed on some national holidays and may be closed due to unforseen circumstances (e.g., really bad weather). If you are unsure, please call ahead!


Winter 2017-2018 Closings

Vacations, seminars and other events will result in the need to close the Prairie Aikikai on certain days. The following are days that the Prairie Aikikai will be closed during the Winter of 2017-2018:


Our last training in 2017 will be on Thursday, December 21, 2017.

We will begin the new year on Thursday, January 4, 2018.


Practice Information

Classes meet several times each week and students are encouraged to practice as often as their schedules allow.


Classes consist of both individual and partner/group practice. Students should consult with Sensei before attending intermediate/advanced sessions.


New Students

Visitors are always welcome. We encourage potential students to visit and watch as many classes as they wish or even participate in up to two classes at no charge. (Guest participants are advised to wear loose-fitting clothing with long sleeves.)


New students can register at the beginning of any class session. Students must be 14 years of age or older (or have instructor permission). Registration is normally month to month, with special rates for students and families.
