Pure Aikido - cultivating the spirit through the arts

Hi and welcome to Pure Aikido. We are a traditional dojo teaching in a contempory environment. Our training focuses on the needs of the individual whether those needs are cultivating the spirit through the martial arts, self-defense, or just fun and fitness. Classes are instructed by Marcus Encel, (Australia’s number-1 instructor).

With unparalled experience and an ongoing passion for this magnificent art students know they can reach their goals in Aikido training here. Inside this site you will find information about aikido, our school, current events and articles.

You can find out more about Pure Aikido at our Blog, Facebook page and Youtube Channel.

Check out our Youtube links to look at the founder of Aikido O'Sensei at an advanced age.

We have a new Basics & Beginners Class on Saturday from 11am -12pm.

Basics class is taught by senior student and soto deshi Rama Cronin. It is suitable for beginners and intermediate level trainees.

Rama has 20 years Aikido experience and has been studying with Sensei Marcus Encel for about 16. He has a disciplined commitment to Aikido which is reflected in his training. Rama has a thoughough and clear teaching style suited to all levels of training. This class runs at a measured pace with individual attention for all attendees, he breaks down Aikido technique into its component parts and at a pace not practicable in a larger more advanced class. This is a great introductory class and for this who prefer a more measured pace that allows then to focus on particular areas of their training.
