Iaido Classes Resuming

We’re thrilled to announce that Iaido classes at Aikido Mountain West will soon resume on Mondays and Fridays at 6 pm - starting on June 12th.

We’re confident that Iaido practice can be safe. There will be no physical contact between students, and, of course, training with a sword requires that practitioners maintain an appropriate distance from each other. Moreover, we’ll be taking additional precautions to increase everyone’s safety: class sizes will be small, and students must wear masks while they train. Since we’ll be limiting the number of students per class, you’ll need to reserve a spot before coming to the dojo. And we’ll add more sessions if we need to - so everyone gets a chance to train.

If you’re interested in Iaido classes, or if you have questions, send a message to iaido@aikidomountainwest.org.

All classes except Iaido are currently postponed due to Covid-19.

This page contains the current schedule for Aikido Mountain West. When you attend one of these classes, please arrive AT LEAST 15 minutes prior to the beginning of class so that you can change and warm-up. Each class will begin promptly at the time listed below. The dojo will be opened 30 minutes prior to the start of each class. Feel free to arrive early, connect with friends, warm up, and ask questions.
