Warrior Studies

What does it mean to be a warrior? Is the notion of a warrior only accessible to those in militaristic combat? Is it reserved for the young, or the aggressive, and those that excel physically? What is your association with the concept of a warrior? With these questions in mind and many others to explore, please join us for a 10-week series on warriorship.


Adapted from Samurai sword arts, Aikido is the study of taking an opponent’s balance. Using their strength and energy against them until the attackers are neutralized and conflict resolved.
