Yoshinkan Aikido Classes:

Fundamentals Aikido Classes are open to all levels from the very beginner to the black belt. Classes always focus on basic or fundamental movements and techniques in a heavily structured way, with lots of modelling.

Advanced Aikido Classes are open to those who have graded to an acceptable level of proficiency (approx. 5th Kyu depending on student abilities), demonstrate safe and capable ‘ukemi’ (breakfalling) skills, and those who display a good level of fitness. These classes assume students have a solid grounding in Yoshinkan Aikido fundamentals and can explore more difficult techniques and principles.

Shintō Musō Ryū Classes

Open to adult students who demonstrate the desire to deepen their training and life experience.

Furthermore, over time students in this class train with the expectation of developing a life based heavily on the Gojō – a value system with ‘benevolence’, ‘justice’, ‘etiquette’, ‘knowledge’ and ‘trust’ at its core.
