Adult Aikido (Winter-Spring)

Our adult classes are open to anyone regardless of experience interested in being part of a friendly group. Have fun training in a vigorous and enjoyable atmosphere.


What will I learn in this class?
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. Regardless of rank, partners need full attention and relaxed concentration to apply the most effective techniques. The lack of competition in the dojo, as well as 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.

What are the benefits of this class?
The benefits of Aikido are endless. Emphasis on correct basics, balance, and posture results in the steady improvement of physical and mental conditioning in daily life and provides a sense of being energized and centered. Although each Aikido student practices at a pace that is suitable to their rank and ability, beginners will gradually build endurance. 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 this class?
Classes are taught by Pacific Aikido instructors who have been teaching Aikido to children and adults since 1991 and at TAC since 1999. The TAC Aikido Club is a registered dojo of the Aikikai Foundation-Aikido World Headquarters under the Pacific Aikido group.
