About Alan Wardroper

Salt Spring Aikido Club

Practice is twice a week for adults, once a week for kids at 298 Salt Spring Way.

Aikido is a dynamic, non-aggressive Japanese martial art suitable for all. It is not about fighting, winning or losing. We don’t break bricks (or each other). Please come by any time, observe a class and see what we are about. We invite all interested parties to train. No previous experience is necessary.
