AIKIDO FOR SELF DEFENSE/APPLIED AIKIDO
This class reaffirms and focuses on the principles and techniques covered in the Fundamentals and All Levels classes; often it adds perspective on modern day attacks or non-traditional situations. There is emphasis on falling safely, and students training in a healthy way in alignment with their own body's abilities. Other basic self defense is incorporated into the Aikido drills, giving students a well rounded martial art platform. Classes go at the pace of those in attendance and all levels are welcome.

Focused attention from the teacher on your particular needs.
Quiet environment with minimal distraction.
Flexibility to repeat one movement until satisfied.
Opportunity for more-self-directed learning.
