John_vs_IvanThis September we 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, September 16. Registration will start at 7:15pm and then class will begin at 7:30pm. 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, September 16 – 7:15-9:00 p.m.(Registration and first class)
  • Thursday, September 18 – 8:00 – 9:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, September 23 – 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, September 25 – 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, so 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 21 Mews Place (see Practical Info for map).

For planning purposes it would be useful for us to know how many people to expect, so please email 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 or post to our Facebook page. We look forward to helping you learn more about Aikido and MUN Aikikai.
