January 21-30: Introduction to Aikido

Note: This has been delayed by a week from the originally announced times. The Intro will now begin on Jan 21. 

This January, the Memorial University Aikido Club will again host our popular two-week, four-class Introduction to Aikido. It will introduce the foundations of Aikido including throws, locks, controls, pins, break falls and weapons techniques as well as the more fundamental principles of posture, distance, timing, movement and harmonization.

This is designed for beginners. Experience with Aikido or any other martial art is neither expected nor necessary. All are welcome and you do not have to be a MUN student!

Registration and the first class will be on Tuesday, January 21 starting at 7:15pm. The cost is $30 and if you decide to continue with the club as a member this money will be discounted from your full membership cost.
Please note: anyone under 18 will require a parental signature on their registration form.

Intro classes will occur on (this replaces the regular schedule on these dates):

  • Tuesday, January 21  – 7:15 – 9:30 p.m.(Registration and first class)
  • Thursday, January 23 – 8:00 – 9:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, January 28  –  7:15 – 9:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, January 30 – 8:00 – 9:30 p.m.

These four classes are intended to be taken in sequence and will each focus on different aspects of Aikido,we encourage you to attend all four so as not to miss anything.

All classes will take place at our dojo in the St. John’s Martial Arts Centre.

For planning purposes it would be useful for us to know how many people to expect, so please email munaikido@gmail.com if you are planning to attend so that we can plan to give you the best experience with our skilled instructors.

If you have any questions feel free to email us.  We look forward to helping you learn more about Aikido and MUN Aikikai.
