What to Wear
We train in traditional white judo keikogis. Beginners without uniforms can come in sweats until a uniform can be purchased.
During COVID-19 our classes will be weapons only, limited to jo and bokken in order to maintain proper social distancing.
This weapons class will focus on the use of the jo (staff) and bokken (wooden sword) as taught within the CAA curriculum. The focus on these weapons helps students develop better timing, spacing and correct body structure which are essential components of the hand to hand techniques of the martial art.
Extra weapons are available. Facemasks are required.
Beginners start with basic falling and footwork practice. Advanced students practice against multiple attacks, both empty-handed techniques and those which involve the use of weapons. Aikido exercises mind, body and spirit with its principles and practices. Through practice, exercise, determination and dedication, these skills can be acquired by anyone, from adolescent to senior.
The Canadian Aikido Association follows the Hombu Dojo grading system.
