Notes for Beginners

To try a class for beginners - Wear loose clothing / sweat pants and top, or any martial art uniform you have on hand. Traditional Aikido uniform is a light weight judo 'gi'.

A typical class has a warm up, technical teaching and group practice. Training includes open hand techniques and use of Japanese weapons (wooden sword, short staff and knife). Training provides an individualized aerobic and muscular work out, in a safe, co-operative, non-competitive environment.

During classes you will often hear a few words of Japanese associated with techniques, basic movements and the organization of the practice session. The most common Japanese terms can be found here: Basic Movements and Terminology
