I don't know what dojo you may be thinking of applying to but you can't go wrong if you: be courteous and respectful, let them know that you are interested in learning aikido, don't let your mouth run away from you, be honest, don't worry...nothin's gonna be alright!

I recommend that you visit all of the dojo in your area which teach aikido more than once. After asking permission to observe, sit quietly with good posture and watch intently. Ask questions of the students after practice and then trust your gut instincts.

Good luck.
