It's great that you've had no experience: aikido is wonderful for first-time
martial artists. Have you checked out the dojo site? It has a lot of info on
the philosophy and practice of aikido: www.aikidovt.org. Let me know if you
have any questions.
And no, the club classes do not cost anything! If you don't have a gi (the
'uniform') you'll need to get one of those, though. Many people get
ones from friends (judo gi's are preferred because they're tougher, but karate
gi's are fine too), but you're certainly welcome to buy one from the dojo. New
ones are about $40, but the dojo usually has a couple second hand ones
available too. We can talk more about this at the meeting if you want.
Thanks for writing back and I look forward to seeing you on Friday!
