The Adult Program – Ages 12 and Up.
Our program is unique in that it not only has the physical aspects of training and fitness, but also encourages the development of other traits such as self-discipline, cooperation, respect, and a more calm disposition. Self-confidence is increased when the challenges of training are successfully met. The individual needs of the students are considered while teaching at a pace that allows them to comfortably fit in with the class. This is your personal, private time to escape life’s normal routine and do something that is beneficial, healthy, and fun. We are unique in that students progress as individuals at their own pace while training in a group environment, there is no time table expected or forced on you.
In the Beginning to Intermediate Adult program we focus on the following core skill sets:
• Nihon Goshin Aikido technique – classical (traditional) & applied (real world) variations
• Balance and Movement – using balance in technique and off-balancing your attacker
• Blocks (offensive & Defensive)
• Strikes that make use of the entire body, used both defensively and offensively
• Nerve Pressure point activation
• Judo chokes, throws and leverage technique
• Ground techniques
• Defense agains knives, sticks and guns
• Defense against multiple attackers
The Children’s Program
The Childrens program has been temporarily suspended. The Academy of Self Defense is currently evolving the childrens program to better meet the needs of “Todays” youth. Please check back or contact the Academy for a projected start date for our NEW Kids curriculum.
The Aikido Academy of Self Defense is constantly examining and refining it’s curriculum based on what works and what doesn’t. The core skill sets emphasized above are only the beginning in our training regimen. Education is a journey that never ends, our instructors are constantly expanding their education in the martial arts and refining what we teach.
