Class Descriptions

Foundations

This class focuses on building a foundation of centeredness and relaxation in each person's Aikido practice. A full spectrum of basic Aikido principles, elements, practices, and techniques is offered here. It's open to all adult/teen dojo members, and is the class dedicated to the Aikido 101 course when that program is in session.

Form & Flow

This is our general class open to all adult/teen dojo members of all levels. Beginners are encouraged to attend. This class includes the basics of applying technique, receiving technique and falling skills, and expressing the living principle of Aikido. Basics transition into more dynamic, complex, and dimensional work in this class.

Form & Flow, Sticks

This is our class dedicated to the traditional Aikido weapons system, and the ongoing exploration of including implements in our training. We primarily use the wooden staff and sword, but our work is not limited to that. All levels are welcome, and beginners are encouraged to attend.

Aikido 101

The Aikido 101 course takes you through the fundamentals of Aikido for a full taste of this powerful and beautiful art. You'll practice the basics of getting centered, blending with the energy of attack, and turning it into something positive. You'll also learn to fall safely under a variety of circumstances.

Aikido 101 is a five-week course for beginning adults. Classes are on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:15 to 7:45. Dojo membership is not required, and you do not need a training uniform. A great introduction to Aikido!
