About Skøyen Aikido


The Skøyen Aikido club was established in 2016. It has grown quickly with a number of highly qualified instructors and a friendly atmosphere.

Skøyen Aikido is part of the Norwegian Aikido Association (NAF). Our instructors are active practitioners who are encouraged to take part in a number of aikido seminars in Norway and abroad.

We practice aikido as a training form for self development. Training should act as a means to better health, improved focus and general wellbeing.
