- We follow the academic calendar with three semesters a year: September-December, January-April, and May-August. Sunday classes are usually cancelled in July and August.
- The student rate applies not only to MUN students but also includes students at the Marine Institute, CNA, high schools, or any other educational institution. It also applies to non-students who have a reduced income.
- Associate memberships are for local aikidoka who are primarily members of other dojos but wish to attend our classes for extra practice. Associate members do not test with us and are not ranked within the CAF.
- The drop-in fee is for visitors from outside the St. John's metropolitan area. For insurance reasons, anyone who (semi-)regularly practices with us must be either a Member or an Associate Member.
Aikido ranks are divided into kyu (white belt) and dan (black belt) grades.We follow the standard grading requirements for the Canadian Aikido Federation from 5th kyu to 1st kyu and then 1st dan and up. 5th-2nd kyu tests are usually conducted by CAF Shidoin while tests for 1st kyu and above are conducted by either the CAF Technical Director or members of the Examining Committee.
You can park either in front of or behind the building. If you park behind look out for trucks arriving and leaving. Do not park on the side - Purolator is on the back of the building and their trucks enter and leave along the side.
