Welcome to Institute of Aikido New Zealand

We hope you enjoy your visit here. Please join or login if you have joined before.


We represent a group of New Zealand aikido clubs which follow the teaching and structure passed down from O_Sensei through Kenshiro AbbeHadyn Foster and Ron Russell.


We work with the Institute of Aikido UK to honour the memory and teaching of the late Hadyn Foster, one of the earliest practitioners of aikido in the UK while continuing to develop our aikido from the teachings of the wide range of excellent teachers available to us in New Zealand.

We are an independent affiliate of the Institute of Aikido UK.

If you are interested in aikido check out our member clubs. We always welcome beginners and visitors.
