Southland Aikido is a wonderfully calm and relaxing environment to learn Aikido. The instructors are experienced and know how to adjust the techniques in the curriculum for the level of the student. I’m inexperienced and a slow learner, but am already improving thanks to the training here.
My experience at Southland Aikido has been 100% positive. I started aikido only about four months ago expecting to learn some self-defense techniques, however, what I have happily stumbled upon is increased focus, mental clarity, confidence, physical fitness, camaraderie, AND the ability to defend myself. As a beginner, I have so much to learn and I look forward to training at Southland Aikido for a long time to come!
