Aikido is a fun, challenging and inclusive form of martial art that focuses on defending oneself and others by harnessing momentum and body placement in a manner respectful to opponents, while cultivating a calm mind, active body, and a cooperative approach to life.

We train in the traditional Japanese martial art of Aikido, our sensei is 5th Dan Robert Griffin. The Institute of Aikido Australia (IOAA) is our affiliate head dojo, they are based in Perth Western Australia with 7th Dan, Sensei John Langley being principle instructor.

Our philosophy at GRIFFIN Aikido, as is with the IOAA, is to respect the practice of contemporary training methods, with a strong ethos of peace and harmony. We also strongly believe in remembering and acknowledging the history of Aikido, training with a notion that Aikido is a Martial Art and should be trained in as such (adult classes only), bringing ancient skills and techniques into our ever-changing modern society.

Included in training is:

  • Group and 1:1 training

  • Individual and multiple attacks

  • Traditional weapons including tanto, bokken & staff

  • Safe Landing/Rolling skills

  • Mindfulness Meditation

Respect, joy and a zest for life is evident to any who join us at our dojo.
