Located on the upper north shore of Sydney, the Ku-ring-gai dojo is an affiliated club with the Aikido Australia association. I established this dojo 30 years ago and I have been providing instruction in the martial art of Aikido, continuously since that time.

Derek_Minus_5th_dan_Aikido_InstructorWith over three decades of experience teaching the martial art of Aikido in the Ku-ring-gai area, the dojo welcomes all people who want to learn harmonious and powerful techniques of self defence.

Now, joined by my senior students, the Club provides a range of Aikido classes each week and seminars during the year for: beginners, children and experienced practitioners.

All of our instructors have over ten years experience teaching Aikido, are internationally graded by the Aikikai in Japan and have a life long commitment to studying and applying the principles which underly this special martial art.

Although derived from the ancient practices of samurai warriors and using the same weapons and fighting techniques, it is a unified and modern martial art bound by principles of aiki, the harmony of human relationship and action.

This website provides full details of our lineage, affiliation and methods. I invite you to come, witness and join our practice.
