Supplies & Equipment

There is nothing in particular you need to buy. We're not using uniforms as we're training outdoors now, and sticks (bokken and jo) are available to use if you don't have your own.

If you want to buy your own sticks, they should be made of high quality oak or hickory. Poor quality equipment won't be allowed for certain kinds of training. If in doubt, check before purchasing.


Books

Learning Aikido requires practice and hands-on teaching. You cannot learn Aikido by reading a book. But you can expand your understanding of the art. Here's a few to get you started:



Student Handbook

You are invited to download our handbook:
Aikido of San Diego Membership Handbook

It includes information about being an Aikido student and community member. The handbook is also where you'll find the details of our ranking system, and everything involved with leveling up.
