Adult Aikido (Winter)

Our adult classes are open to anyone interested in working with others in an enjoyable atmosphere.

Our adult classes are open to those 15 years and older and to anyone interested in working with others in an enjoyable atmosphere.
We always try to ensure that while getting a great work out we also have fun. No experience is necessary.

What will I learn in these classes?
The emphasis on blending with an attack rather than meeting force with force, gradually helps develop an attitude of calm towards situations of physical or emotional conflict.
Aikido techniques mainly come from weapons training, in particular the jo (wooden staff), and bokken (wooden sword). In addition to body movements, students will focus on how to use the jo and bokken properly and their importance to Aikido. Weapons training develops correct stance, posture, and a good understanding of distance. It also teaches timing so students learn when to move and sync with the partner to anticipate the next moves. Unlike regular Aikido practice, students can practice various forms at home on their own.

What are the benefits of these classes?
In Aikido we have partners, not opponents, and the key is working together with the partner so both can improve. Students will learn that by focusing on aspects of their own movements, as well as those of their partner, they can increase awareness and concentration and the benefits are endless. Emphasis on correct basics, balance, and posture results in the steady improvement of physical and mental conditioning in daily life. The level of concentration that a person focuses on aspects of their own body movements, as well as those of their partner, increases awareness and powers of concentration.

Who will teach these classes?
The Chief Instructor is Paul Neuman, a 5th-degree black belt from Vancouver and father of three. Paul has assembled a great team of highly skilled instructors with years of experience. Pacific Aikido has been teaching Aikido to children and adults since 1991 and at the Club since 1999. The TAC Aikido Club is a registered dojo of the Aikikai Foundation-Aikido World Headquarters under the Pacific Aikido group.
