Aikido for Adults (age 14 and up)
The essence of Aikido lies not in fighting others, but avoiding conflict and subduing
aggressors without causing
them harm. Practiced by more than a million individuals worldwide, Aikido appeals to women and men,
and old, who seek to better themselves and their world. In Aikido everyone trains together: men and
flexible and stiff, large and small, veteran and novice. Through this training we learn how to deal
with all kinds
of people. Our partner becomes our teacher. We try to practice in a "vibrant and joyful manner",
that Aikido is not simply learning physical technique, it is the "art of living well, in harmony
with others and at
peace with the world."
Mixed-level adult classes are offered six days/week (see SCHEDULE). $150/month entitles members to
unlimited Aikido and Yoga classes. Beginner's Special: 3 months for the price of 2.
