Adult Classes

We have two levels for Adults: Level I is for the new student needing the basics. Curriculum includes stretching and flexibility training; learning to fall and roll in order to recover from a throwing technique; terminology and protocol understanding; Aikido theory and philosophy; and plenty of questions and answers.

Level II Classes for adults involve an infinite number of empty-handed techniques that deal with throwing, unbalancing, or pinning a potential adversary; exploration of the possibilities involved in disarming an adversary that chooses to use a weapon against you, such as a knife, broken bottle, baseball bat, or even a handgun. In addition, special classes are conducted in the use of the short staff (jo) and the wooden sword (bokken).
