Aikido for Seniors

This winter we will be running a weekly seniors (50+) class.

The class will emphasize balance, posture and flexibility using yoga and traditional Asian warmups coupled with soft exercises and partner practices from Aikido. It is intended for beginners and no experience with martial arts or yoga is either required or expected.

The classes will run Wednesday mornings from 10:30am to noon, from January 10 — April 25 inclusive and will be held in our dojo at the St. John's Martial Arts Centre on 21 Mews Place.

The cost will be $120 for all 16 classes or there is a drop-in fee of $10/class.

The instructor is John Bell, Aikido Nidan (2nd degree black belt). John started Aikido in 1992 when he was 39 years old and continues to train in the regular classes at MUN Aikikai.
