Arun Aikido Club
Grading Syllabus


Some students enjoy general aikido training, and are not that interested in taking gradings. That's fine, you don't have to grade with us. Other students like to have feedback on how they are progressing.

For gradings, we expect very high standards from our students. There are many clubs that do lower their standards in order to keep students... we are not among them!

Most Aikido dojo's stop general training, to offer 8-12 weeks of focused practice before a grading seminar. If you are prepared in that time you will be asked to grade. If not, unfortunately, you are not ready yet.

It is your responsibility to be ready!

The best way to prepare yourself for your grading is by being disciplined in the dojo. Watch your instructors, listen closely to what they say, and work hard on the details of your techniques.

If you approach your training in a casual way your progress will be slower.

Aikido is a very complex art that takes a lot of thought, effort, and time to progress. We recommend that you read your gradings syllabus, think about it, and practice something on a daily basis.

We are currently working on techniques in video format to help our students prepare themselves. We hope the following videos will help. We will continue to add more videos until the syllabus is complete :)

Because of the high standard required, the Arun Aikido Club only offer one or two grading seminars per year. You'll find the complete grading syllabus below...
