Deep Aikido
Join us for a 10-week study in Breathing, Balance, Movement, and Personal Mastery

Description: Drawing on the principles of the art of Aikido, this 10-week study offers training and experience in:

  • Optimal breathing and balance in movement
  • Personal leadership and mastery through the exploration of Aikido philosophy, concepts, and somatic methods of embodiment
  • Buki training, including safe solo and partner exercises with the jo (wooden short staff) and bokken (wooden sword)

Deep Aikido is a course designed to thoroughly study the esoteric elements found in aikido practice. The classes focus on breath control exercises, aikido basic movements, and include an in-depth study around the application of aikido and martial arts principles in everyday life. No prior aikido or martial arts experience is necessary.

Session Dates: The course will be held on Thursday nights starting on March 2nd, 2017 from 6:00PM to 8:00 PM and concluding on May 4th.

Cost: $60 (no charge to Shuharikan members in good standing).

Experience Level: Beginners thru Advanced — Although we draw on the art of Aikido, this is a “low impact” course; there will be no falls, throws or pins. No prior martial arts or athletic experience is necessary.
