- Beginners Classes – Introduction to Aikido training procedures, Budo principles, and the dojo standards/etiquette. Emphasis is on Ukemi and techniques through standard ASU 5th kyu waza. If you have never trained Aikido or any martial art before, this is a place to begin, but you are not limited to these classes. The focus in these classes however, is on new students.
- General Class – Open to all levels / (principle) articulation through waza (technique).
- Yudansha and instructor level classes – Everyone is welcome to participate, but the training vocabulary and concepts are presented focused on more experienced evolving Aikidoka.
- Buki Waza – weapons study, and interpretation of weapons principles as they relate to movement in ASU Aiki and empty hand training.
We look forward to training with you.
