Aikido classes
Aikido Melbourne


Where are you located?

We train at 1551 Highland Avenue, smack in the middle of historic downtown Eau Gallie in Melbourne, FL. We are right across the street from the Eau Gallie public library in full view of the beautiful Indian River.


What makes your school different than others?

  • adults only

  • modern and relevant

  • comprehensive and complete system

  • no katas

  • no boards to break

  • no beginner's corner

  • no binding contracts

  • no hidden fees

  • always a good time!


Do I need any previous martial arts experience?

Not at all. We all start somewhere. Whether you have a lot of experience in the martial arts or you have none, you will find yourself right at home at Rocky Waters.


How much does it cost?

Because of the sheer value of the training and we only teach 
adults, we are not the lowest priced martial arts school in town. 
If you are looking for the cheapest, low end instruction around, 
we are not going to be the right place for you. On the other hand, 
if you are looking for the most expensive, showiest dojo to be 
found, we are still not going to be the right place for you.

That being said, if you are looking for adult only classes 
tailored just for you, and you value personal attention to help 
meet your goals, then you've found the right place!

Because we have different options when it comes to dues, the best 
thing to do is come in to see what you will be learning and to 
discuss possibilities.

What do I wear if I want to try a class?

Please wear something that is comfortable and loose that you don't 
mind getting sweaty or damaged in any way. Normal gym or sport 
attire will work just fine.


Is this just about hitting and throwing people?

No way. It is so much more.

Our modern day, relevant self protection system for adults can 
help you become more focused, more confident, get into better 
shape, and feel more energized after each and every class. You 
will also feel more powerful, healthy, and alert than ever before.

This is about making new friends and finding things out about 
yourself you never knew before. In effect, this is a path to 
becoming a stronger and more capable person overall


How long does it take to get to black belt?

This is a good question, but the problem is that it all depends. 
Everything depends on how often you train, how much you retain, 
how skilled you get, and how much you put into your own development. Some folks have received their black belt in 6 years, while others have taken 7, 8, or 9 years and longer. Keep in mind that black belt rank is not necessarily a certificate of skill or any guarantee the holder has "mastered" any martial art.

Your progress depends on you and nobody else. Basically, you get out of this what you put into it. You can be sure of this, though: you will never be ashamed of any rank you get at Rocky Waters Aikido .


Is Aikido hard?

As with all things of value and worth, the mastery of Aikido takes 
time. But you know what? You won't care anyway. You are going to have a blast, make cool discoveries, get excited, get frustrated, regularly renew your sense of wonder, learn patience, and grow like never before.

You will definitely be challenged. You will learn balance, strength, and coordination to a degree you may never have expected.

Let's not forget: Aikido is a martial art. It can be very firm or very gentle. It can happen so fast that the attacker can only remember just thinking about the attack, or so leisurely that everything happens in slow motion. It can be intense at times, but you will find that smiling and laughter are as much a part of the practice as the techniques themselves.
