Membership Dues

Shindai Dojo Membership Dues

Shindai Aikikai is an ASU member dojo dedicated to the promotion  and teaching of Aikido as taught by M. Saotome Shihan.  Our membership dues are kept low because profit is not our focus. Our instructors do not accept compensation because we teach in response to obligation and responsibility set forth by our founder and his teachers.

Shindai charges a non-contract minimum amount in monthly fees’ primarily to address our operating costs, and to ensure the provision of a sustainable healthy productive training environment for our students. In addition, the dojo funds are used to enhance training experiences available regionally and nationally by hosting seminars with leading national and international instructors.

If the training doesn’t keep you here, contract obligation should not.

Monthly membership dues cover access to all classes 7 days a week.
