Prospective students can start at the beginning of any calendar month. Watching a class before starting is recommended and a free trial class is offered to everyone. Loose fitting, comfortable athletic clothing that covers your elbows and knees is all you need for your first few classes.

New students are integrated into the regular classes. In this way, beginners benefit from training with experienced students. No need to worry about being pushed to train at an uncomfortable pace as everyone works at his or her own level.

Rock Water Aikikai currently focuses on Child, Youth, Teen and Young Adult Programs, designed to challenge students based on their age specific needs. For students who are particularly keen on developing their character and leadership skills, we have an Instructor Training Program (ITP). For more on that you can visit:
