We’re re-opening 22nd June!

We’re re-opening classes for adults and children at both Heidelberg and Springvale dojos! There will be lots of safety measures in place so come on down and get back on the mats.

It has been a long and tedious few months during the lockdown but we are seeing the end of it now. With the restrictions being lifted and return to indoor exercise being allowed, we are looking to re-open the Dojo.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Dojo and are excited to meet new faces of people we have gotten to know during the lockdown. For many of us, returning to training will be a difficult journey. However, we are ecstatic to be able to step foot in the Dojo with you all again so we can go back to doing what we love with the people who make it what it is.

Now that we’ve known what it’s like without Aikido, let’s train harder than ever! We have a lot of time to make up for.


Saturday 20th June
Working Bee (Heidelberg & Springvale Dojos)

Final Online Kid’s Class (2:30 – 3pm)

Monday 22nd June
Dojo re-opens


I don’t think this section needs a pre-face. We are all excited to get back on the mats and back to classes. Here’s everything you need to know:

  1. Children’s classes, Teen’s classes and Adult’s classes will all be running
  2. The date is Monday June 22nd, 2020
  3. You will need to sign up to our special membership for the first month
  4. You may be required to sign-up to classes in advance

Where can you find all the details for this? See the section below for all the information.

As thanks for the overwhelmingly positive support we have received during these tough times, we are waiving the membership fees for the first month (until July 22nd). The sign-up date for the free memberships will formally close on June 30th, so be sure to sign up to that online!


A tremendous thank you to everyone who attended our online classes. They have been a successful salve during these times. With the re-opening of the Dojo, we will be saying good-bye to the online platform for classes.

There will be no more Online AikiFit classes and the final Kid’s class will be this Saturday 20th June at 2:30pm – 3pm.



There’s lots of things to be done so that we can open the Dojo and welcome everyone back to the mats. We are hosting a working bee at both the Heidelberg Dojo and Springvale Dojo to this effect.

If you have time, please come and help us prepare for the re-opening! It will be 3 hours from 12-3pm (but you can come and leave whenever). We appreciate all the help we can receive!

It will be a good chance to see everyone’s faces again after so long. We hope you have all been well and look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Also, I’ve been asked to request that if you are coming to the working bee to please bring a bucket.
