The Dojo Environment
The dojo is set in the midst of 67-acres of native bush. A pure stream with waterfalls and swimming-holes runs through the tall mamaku ferns and kauri trees surrounding the dojo. The light of hundreds of glow-worms on the riverbank reflect in the water at night challenging a marvelous night sky featuring the unbelieveably bright Milky Way and Southern Cross.

Not only aikido
The Koru Dojo is available for retreats, workshops and seminars for related disciplines, such as tai chi, yoga, meditation and healing arts. We welcome groups looking for a peaceful place, close to Nature, where they can practise without distraction or interruption, and where there is easy access to some of the country's best scenic and adventure locations.
