In our mixed-level classes, everyone trains together, learns from each other, and advances at their own pace in a non-competitive, supportive environment. The instructor of the class takes into consideration everyone's age, abilities, and special circumstances, such as injuries.
Our advanced class is taught by Konigsberg Sensei. This class emphasizes free, spontaneous movement under multiple attacks. It is for 2nd kyu level and higher or by special invitation from Konigsberg Sensei.
This class emphasizes the principles of Aikido, such as ki (energy), that emphasize movement and deal with the initial encounter between the aggressor and the recipient of the aggression. The instructor takes into consideration the ability of the individual to take falls and rolls. These skills are not required to participate in the class.
Our Weapons class teaches movement with a bokken (wooden sword) or jo (wooden staff), which is directly related to empty-hand Aikido technique. Working with a weapon helps free and expand consciousness and develop peripheral vision and focus.
