WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My daughter has been attending West Coast Aikido for over 6 years, in that time it has strengthen her leaderships skills and confidence in addition to improved fitness. She has made life long friends as well as gaining important self defence skills. She is now Head Girl of her school and is striving to do her best in every aspect her life. There is no doubt that training at West Coast Aikido has been an important factor in our child’s success.
I send my kids here to learn how not to fight.
The West Coast Aikido Martial Arts Academy's In School Program has been a great opportunity for students to experience a martial art and gain confidence, self-defence skills and develop respect for others. They had two excellent teachers in Sensei Ross Taylor and Sensei Matt Olney. Right from the start, the students were engaged and challenged to listen, understand and practice useful techniques for self-defence. The sessions were also a lot of fun. Students found many of the moves challenging at first and had to overcome their fear of falling or become confident to use their strength. They had to work together and learn to be a good teacher, helping each other master each skill. It was very rewarding for students to experience being able to defend and push over a much larger person with the techniques they had learnt. The look of delight on their faces said it all. Thank you to Sensei Ross and Sensei Matt for providing this valuable and very engaging opportunity for Ellenbrook Christian College.
I did the “Aiki Fitness Sessions” in this academy for few months and I really enjoyed my training sessions. I’m very happy and satisfied with the training programs the professional fitness training coach “Matt” gave me. Every session was different and challenging. I could see the results in the first month! The Academy also has a very safe environment and all the professional coaches are so polite and friendly. It’s a great choice for the families to bring their children to train. Highly recommended! Thanks West Coast Aikido for giving me a great experience!
I have been a student at West Coast Aikido for 4 years and from it I have gained so much from it. I couldn’t recommend a better dojo to go to.
I’d like to say Thanks To ALL that have helped Levi get to where he is today. In the past he had doubts about getting up in front of the class when asked to do his Kata. But this last session he did it not Once but Twice and that to me means that his confidence is growing. As a result of the hard work from himself and the amazing people at West Coast Aikido Martial Arts Keep up the hard work everyone and Thanks Again.
Our son has now been attending Aikido consistently for six months, and looks forward to each class he attends. As a parent, it certainly makes me proud to see him achieving his goals and the fact that he enjoys his time with the instructors who will serve as positive role models in his life now and as he gets older.
The Private Lessons with you gave me confidence, belief in myself and my abilities and they confirmed my opinion how lucky I am to be a student in your school. I could not set a dollar value to the experiences I gained in each of the lessons.
Enter the world of aikido and your life will change forever.

My kids LOVE Aikido. A smaller dojo/community means that everyone knows each other which creates a really great family feel. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else!

Fantastic instructors, great atmosphere!
My son has been doing aikido for 5 years with the past 12 months being at West Coast Aikido. In the time he has been at West Coast Aikido he has improved immensely and way beyond what he did at the other aikido school.West Coast Aikido is a lot more structured yet makes it fun for the kids. I have found that my son’s confidence levels have improved greatly. The family focused atmosphere is also what I find great about West Coast Aikido. I would recommend West Coast Aikido for sure to anyone with children.
We have been coming to the West Coast Aikido dojo for 3 years now since one of my daughters joined and the other two followed shortly after. The place is filled with HARMONY! The Sensei is great and very cool. The same as all other instructors. My girls like aikido and I can say that other kids like it too. Parents are also very happy.
Since having enrolled the kids at West Coast Aikido we have noticed definite improvements in their focus and confidence. The atmosphere at the dojo is excellent. The sensei’s strike a good balance between discipline and fun, giving the kids a great learning environment.
My two boys have been training with West Coast Aikido for 8 months now and have loved every minute of it! The atmosphere in the dojo is focused but like a big family, with instructors who are very approachable.In the world we now live in it is important that my boys are learning the necessary skills to develop their confidence, focus, awareness and self-defence skills. I can see West Coast Aikido being a big part of our lives for years to come.
Both of my sons (7 & 8 years) attend the West Coast Aikido Academy every week and love it! I have seen a great improvement in their confidence and attitude. The instructors are fantastic and show great patience especially when instructing the younger students. I would not hesitate in recommending the West Coast Aikido Academy to others.
