Honoring those who have studied with dedication, heart, and earnest endeavor to apply what Aikido has to offer into their daily lives.
Aikido Rank Structure
At Two Rivers Aikido, rank is much more than a number. While there are many Aikidoka interested in pursuing rank, likewise, there are many Aikidoka who train simply because they love the art. As such we are not a rank driven school and welcome all sincere students of the art.
For those who are interested, demonstrating is an opportunity to advance one’s training by focusing on a series of techniques and principles. The demonstration process invites students to challenge themselves, improve their technical ability, and deepen their understanding of aikido practice.
Two Rivers does not require students to advance through ranks. Adult ranks begin at 6th Kyu and progress to 1st Kyu and then to Dan ranks (black belt).
