A New Year's Introduction to Aikido

This January we will repeat our two-week, four-class Introduction to Aikido. It will introduce the foundations of Aikido including throws, locks, controls, pins, break falls and weapons techniques as well as the more fundamental principles of posture, distance, timing, movement and harmonization. This is designed for beginners so no experience with Aikido or any other martial art is either expected or necessary. It will happen on January 18 (Tuesday), January 21 (Friday), January 25 (Tuesday) and January 28 (Friday), each day from 7:00-9:00pm. The four classes are intended to be taken in sequence and will each focus on different aspects of Aikido, so people signing up are encouraged to do their best to attend all four so as not to miss anything.

Registration will be before the first class (January 18) starting at 6:45pm (anyone under 18 will require a parental signature on their registration form). The cost is $30 but if, at the end, you decide to continue with the club as a member this money will be discounted from the full membership cost. For planning purposes it would be useful for us to know how many people to expect, so please email
munaikido@gmail.com if you are planning to attend. Or, if you have any questions feel free to email us there as well.
