Welcome to Oslo Aikido Dojo

Oslo Aikido Dojo welcomes all new members to train with us at any time, regardless of skill, from beginner to advanced.

Aikido is japanese martial art with pins and throws. Aikido develops you physically and mentally, and gives you energy. Everyone can train Aikido together.

We practice regularly at our new dojo in Eikenga 17 at Økern. We have vacant time in our dojo and would like to rent some time at our premises for other activities. Come by for a free trial or check out our schedule. Please read more about training for beginners here, or contact us for more information. The next startup for beginners is post corona restrictions.

Report from seminar with Kuribayashi shihan in Oslo September 2019

For the sixth time, Kuribayashi Shihan came from Hombu Dojo in Tokyo to Oslo to teach us. We had visitors from around the country as well as from abroad.

This year also, Kuribayashi Shihan was gracious enough to hold a black belt training on Friday morning in OAK’s dojo at Hasle before the main seminar. It was of course great to yet again have a Hombu instructor in our dojo, and very good keiko for all the yudansha people. Afterwards, there was lunch in the dojo.

As usual it was intensive practice, and good atmosphere on the mat during the regular seminar. The main message from Kuribayashi Shihan was that one had to develop as an aikidoka with a larger repertoire and greater weight. He compared it to white bread and dark bread, where the former is a lighter and less rich variety of bread, while the latter is heavier and more rich.

Thanks to Kuribayashi Shihan for teaching, to Hombu dojo, and to all participants for contributing to a great seminar and helping with the mat carrying before and after the seminar! And last but not least, thanks to NKF for the support! Without them, the seminar would not have been possible.
