Aikido – all levels
Training is open to all club members. Beginners work together with more advanced students for the benefit of both of these groups.
Aikido – from 4th kyu
This training is for students with 4th kyu and higher (who can fall fluidly and handle basic techniques). This is a space for more dynamic and/or complex practice.
A part of hand techniques in Aikido comes from the Japanese fencing arts. Therefore working with weapons is naturally included in Aikido training: we use a wooden sword (boken), staff (jo) and knife (tanto). Working with a sword helps to develop a posture, power in the body’s center, concentration, determination and precision.
To relax and regenerate after a week of training, we do a simple massage or stretching in pairs. You will learn the basic techniques of the Japanese energetic massage shiatsu, which builds on the same principles as Aikido – the ideas of balance and harmony, gentle, firm contact, and working from one’s center…
Aikido – free pracive
A space for everyone to practice on the tatami without a teacher. The class has no predetermined structure; usually a few groups form and practice whatever they wish. Even the complete beginners are usually taken care of by the more advanced students. We do recommend to planning practice with others during the week. This practice may occasionally be cancelled.
Some food and drinks after evening classes
We usually don’t speak too much during trainings, and often reserve time for all kinds of socializing in a nearby restaurant. These “eating and drinking classes” are not necessary for mastering aikido techniques, but being with friends is a very pleasant part of our training:).
