The Thursday Free Class times are changing to 6:30-8:00pm. For the rest of May we will still start at 6pm and run to 8pm, so you can come early or late and still get a full 1 1/2 class or 2 hr. if you wish.
1. The Sensei (instructor) is knowledgeable, helpful and safe.
2. The techniques work and can be powerful, but don't always need to be powerful.
3. The senior students look out for and help the junior students and keep things safe.
4. Everybody is learning a lot and having fun.
There are Dojos that stand a lot on visual image and ritual because they can't stand on knowledge and there are Dojos that forego a lot of ritual and may not look like much but they have an abundance of knowledge. We are in the latter group.
I am teaching high quality, world class Aikido. You won 't realize this until you go somewhere else and experience what others are learning. This was the goal of going to Japan. You will not get to world class level in a week, a month or a year. You can get to average in a year. World class takes minimum 3 years if you are committed to coming often. Normally it will take 5-7 years, but you will know the quality here immediately if you practice in another Aikido Dojo. Average people don't get to black belt. They quit too soon. The above average get to black belt similar to Eagle Scout attainment.
This special is the same for Kids, Teens or Adult Classes. 20 Classes for $200. The discount is $200 off for a 50% discount. Classes are 1 1/2 hour long. For the Kids and Teens there are usually water breaks on the 1/2 hour. For the Adults the break comes around 45 minutes. If the practice is very lively, we may break at the half hours. For most beginners the focus is on simple anti-bully techniques. As proficiency improves more traditional Aikido techniques are taught. Advanced practice includes Nishio Style techniques and more weapons practice. I'm often teaching the integration of the empty hand with the weapons because the weapon can teach you more how the technique works.
