Basics Class

Our Basics Classes are a good place for a new student to begin working on basic skills that will serve as a firm foundation on which to build further study. For more advanced students, the classes enhance understanding of the fundamental principles underlying all Aikido techniques.

Class Dates & Times

The Basics classes are held on

  • Thursdays from 7:15 to 8:15 p.m.

  • Sundays from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

Class Structure

In the basic class, techniques are broken down into their basic components and are performed:

  • One step at a time

  • With minimum use of power

This pace of practice ensures adequate safety for beginning students and allows the advanced students to grasp the essence of the techniques and their underlying principles.

The focus is on technique taught in a step-by-step method and practiced slowly. The class is for both new and experienced students.

The Basics Sampler package provides a great opportunity to try out aikido and see if it's for you.
