Adults & teens basics

Instructor: Alix Flavelle

Tuesdays 7:30-8:30

Open to adults and teens, for those just starting, or for intermediate and advanced students wishing for an opportunity to slow down and deepen their study of internal alignment. You will practice ukemi, the art of falling, as well as how to move fluidly with relaxed and centred posture – useful skills for any physical activity in your life. You will also learn basic techniques with a focus on maintaining your own centre while sensing and connecting with your training partners’ centre.


Introductory Sessions

From time to time we offer 6 week sessions, with beginners classes twice a week. This way offers systematic instruction covering all the basics:

  • Learning to fall and roll
  • Discovering naturally strong, stable and centred posture and movement
  • Experiencing the Aikido principles of entering an attack, blending with an attack, connecting centre to centre, staying relaxed, and extending ki.
  • Basic techniques
  • Dojo etiquette
