Queen of Peace Spring Semester After School Aikido 10 Classes $175
This is the same for Kids or Teens. 10 Classes for $175. Class is about 1 1/2 hour long, depending on the gym situation. There are usually water breaks on the 1/2 hour. For the beginners, the focus is on simple anti-bully hold extraction techniques to promote more partnership practice. The second test will involve learning to fall and roll. The third test will have slightly more complex anti bully techniques. As proficiency improves more traditional Aikido techniques are taught. After the second class the student is issued a white belt. Returning students should bring in their belt. As the student learns requirements, mainly rolls in first test, a strip of tape is placed on the belt to show how the student is progressing. When the student has all the stripes for the first test, there will be a test to verify the student remembers what to do. We will trade belts after the first test. There will be a $10 charge for the first colored belt, yellow. This covers my costs for the belt. The second test is the anti-bully techniques. When the student passes that test, we can trade belts or the student must buy another belt. I normally just trade the student's previous belt for the next belt. If the student wants to keep the previous belt there is another $10 charge for the new belt.
