Slogan: 'Cultivating the Spirit through Martial Arts'
Bio: Aiki no Michi Aikidojo was established in 1997. The name was then changed to Pure Aikido as many found their previous name confusing. The goals of this dojo continue to be excellence, the faithful preservation of the founder's techniques; spiritual growth and self defense. The focus is on regular training.

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

These comprise of a Tuesday mixed weapon class and the Saturday Ki flow and Misogi (meditation) class.
Saturday class is for general admission and focus’s on the extension of KI (energy) for Aikido, healing and meditation. This class concentrates on the more fluid and esoteric aspects of Aikido training.
Tuesdays mixed weapon class is for advanced students and dedicated beginners only. It is not a core class but rather extends on basic training.

You must experience at least one months training and recive approval to participate. This class focus’s on the realistic application of empty hand against knife, knife on knife, and various mixed weapons. Generally students use rubber knives and empty hands for attack and defense in a free sparring environment. Goggles are used for safety reasons. Modern self defense scenarios are explored including makeshift weapons.
