IOAS logoThe Institute of Aikido dojo in Silverdale at the top of Auckland’s north shore is located on Francis sensei’s home, and training is by invitation only – however the dojo operates a 24/7 open door policy to all students and members of the Institute of Aikido and their affiliated clubs.

Custom built in June 2008, It is a beautiful space, one of the largest dedicated Aikido dojos in New Zealand with 112 sq metres of mat. Facilities include on-site accommodation, a gym and the benefits of 5 acres of beautiful countryside featuring streams, waterways and a two acres pine forest.

There are frequent seminars held throughout the year as well as regular Aiki ken and Aiki Jo workshops on a Monday evening and an open mat (all ages, families welcome) session every Sunday morning.
