About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, December 19, 2020.

Gyokushin Ryu Aikido is a traditional Japanese Aikido style that also incorporates elements of Judo and Karate. Aikido is a defensive martial art that uses joint techniques, throws and pins in a defensive manner. Students will improve their balance, coordination, and concentration as well as learn how to merge with the energy or motion of their practice partner. It is also a form of moving meditation or mindfulness which improves both concentration and awareness. The instructor, Dr. Barry Ackerson, is a 5th degree black belt (Godan) who has been awarded the title of Shihandai by Master Washizu in Japan.
No class Nov 28.
