Aikido – all levels
Classes open to all club members. Beginners work together with more advanced students for the benefit of both of these groups.
Aikido – advanced
This training is for students with 4th kyu and higher (who can fall fluently and handle basic techniques). This is a space for more dynamic and/or complex practice.
Aikido with weapons
A big part of unarmed techniques in aikido comes from the Japanese fencing arts. Therefore the work with weapons is naturally included in aikido training: we use wooden sword (boken), staff (jo) and knife (tanto). The work with sword helps to develop a proper body posture, power in the body 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 – that is the idea of balance and harmony, the 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 according to their choice. Even the complete beginners are usually taken care of by the more advanced students. We recommend to plan the practice with others during the week. The practice may be cancelled occasionaly.
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:).
