Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

Congratulations Sensei Roby

Our own Sensei Roby Kessler was awarded the prestigious honour of 6th Dan by Sensei Kashiwaya on Behalf of the Aikido Ki Society of Japan at a recent Seminar.

Thank you bunnings!

Aikido Cairns was lucky enough to be part of the great Community Day organised by Bunnings yesterday. Not only did this give us a wonderful opportunity to meet members of the Cairns community to discuss our great martial art and how it may benefit them. It also afforded us the chance to show off our good looks!
If you missed us and would like to find out more about taking up Aikido, please check our contact us page and get in touch. If you did come and say hello  – be sure to follow it up and come and try – remember, your first lesson is free so you have nothing to lose!

Easter Break

Dear All,

Just a quick reminder that due to Easter there will be no training in Cairns this coming Saturday and Monday. Classes will recommence in Yorkey’s Knob on Wednesday 23rd.

You are welcome to attend our Tuesday class in Mossman if you can’t stand the thought of not being on the mat for that long!

And we might take this opportunity to remind you that the early bird discount for the National Seminar is approaching – so get your registration form in to save 10%..!
