Riai Aikido Wellington is one club operating out of two locations or dojos, in Crofton Downs and Mount Cook. Riai Aikido Wellington was established in 1993 (this year we celebrate our 20th year: come to our party) and is an incorporated society. We have an active membership, and welcome new members with or without prior aikido experience.
For more information please contact Paul Holohan (club secretary) on 021 408 569 or , or one of the dojo contacts below.
