Separate classes may be arranged for groups of 4 or more women. For groups of less than 4, come to one of the regular Aikido class times and the Self Defense course can be taught then. It will probably require two classes to cover all the instruction and techniques.
Women’s Self-Defense from Aikido of Gainesville will teach you effective, powerful techniques in a small-group workshop setting. Small student to instructor ratio; space is limited. Women age 14+ (Minors require a parental signature on the waiver.) We accommodate your needs. You are capable of benefiting from this instruction without fear of injury. Please bring a water container; we'll have fresh, chilled water available. It's a long class, bring a snack. You will be taught and will repeat the techniques many times so they become part of your body memory. You will learn to take the balance of your attacker, no matter their size, and escape. Sensei Tom Huffman has taught Aikido in Gainesville since 1997 after a 20-year military career. During six years in Japan he learned from masters in Aikido, Iaido, Batto and Karate. He holds a 4th degree black belt in Aikido and additional black belts in swordsmanship and karate. Asst. Instructor Keith McInnis is a former law enforcement officer, trainer and lifelong martial artist. We have designed this personal defense curriculum based on past experiences and various Aikido, Karate and police techniques. This event is for April 21st, 2018 from 2:00PM to 5:00PM at our SW Gainesville dojo. You will receive an email confirmation and further instructions upon completion of registration.
