About the Club

  • Founded in 1991 by Antti Paatero
  • Part of Kotkan Judoseura (Judoclub).
  • Practitioners about 20–30 people.
  • We train Aikikai style of Aikido and we are member of Finnish Aikido Federation.

Beginner's class

  • Beginner’s class starts in every spring and fall. Info about the class will be informed in the Aikido section’s website, bulletin boards and in local newspapers in Kotka-region. 
  • In order to join the Beginner’s class, you will need a pair of sandals, a small towel and flexible clothes or a white keikogi (uniform) with a white belt.
  • Beginner’s class costs 100 € (90 € for students). Other (optional) payments are Aikido uniform/keikogi (~50 €), 6th kyu belt test (15 €), aikido license/insurance (60 € over age 18 / 19 € under age 18) and an Aikido passport (10 €).
  • Minimum age 13 years. No junior classes (6–12 years) are being held at this point.
  • Aikido club doesn’t insurance its trainees so every practitioner is responsible for his/hers own insurance concerning the aikido practice. It is possible to purchase one from SuomiSport.
