Spring Introduction to Aikido

This May, we are pleased to bring you a four-class Introduction to Aikido. It will introduce the foundations of Aikido including throws, locks, controls, pins, and break falls as well as the more fundamental principles of posture, distance, timing, movement and harmonization.

This is designed for beginners. Experience with Aikido or any other martial art is neither expected nor necessary. All are welcome and you do not have to have any connection to MUN!

Registration and the first class will be on Tuesday, May 7. Registration will start at 7:15pm and then class will begin at 7:30pm. The cost is $40 and if you decide to continue with the club as a member this money will be discounted from your full membership cost. Payments can be made at the dojo by cash or cheque (made out to MUN Aikido) or by email transfer (contact us for details).
Please note: anyone under 18 will require a parental signature on their registration form.

Intro classes will occur on (this replaces the regular schedule on these dates):
• Tuesday, May 7 – 7:15 - 8:30 p.m. (Registration and first class).
• Thursday, May 9 – 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
• Friday, May 10 – 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
• Tuesday, May 14 – 7:30 - 8:30 p.m.
• Thursday, May 16 – 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
• Friday, May 17 – 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

These six classes will each focus on different aspects of Aikido, so we encourage you to attend all six so as to get the full experience. However if your schedule doesn't allow for all six, missing some is fine.

All classes will take place at our dojo in the St. John’s Martial Arts Centre 21 Mews Place (see Practical Info for map).

For planning purposes it would be useful for us to know how many people to expect, so please email or respond on our Facebook page if you are planning to attend.
