Once again proof people are weird. Enough requests for a beginners series over the last few months and to support the aikido beginners series here at SSA, we once again offer an introductory class.
Beginners series class starts at 6:15 and runs to 7:30. For those interested in being weird, the beginners series is designed to give a taste of what is needed to learn martial arts. This is a 3 month course and consists of:
- Conditioning exercises
- Basic skills in ukemi, which I like to translate as “learning to fall down and getting back up”
- Basic etiquette, also known as “how to keep from getting someone mad at you in a dojo”
- Introduction to a basic techniques.
