Fall Aikido Beginner's Series

Fall Beginner's Series

Oct 1st - Nov 5th
Tuesdays, 6-7:30 pm

A 6-week introduction to Aikido

Want to give aikido a try? The 6-week Beginner’s Series is a great introduction and exploration of aikido and martial arts training, including principles of position and movement, ukemi (falling and rolling), nage (throwing), aikido philosophy, and dojo culture and etiquette. The introductory six-week program also provides a good grounding for those who want to pursue further study (note: the program is not required for regular enrollment at Tacoma Aikikai).

*No experience or equipment necessary. Wear loose clothes that cover the knees and elbows, and bring an open mind. 

About Aikido

Aikido is a modern martial art developed in Japan. Known as “the way of harmony”, aikido neutralizes an opponent’s attacks through joint locks and throws. Through sincere training, students of all ages and abilities find confidence in conflict resolution, improved fitness and flexibility, and an overall sense of well-being.

About Tacoma Aikikai

Tacoma Aikikai offers community-centered aikido instruction, rooted in the lineage and discipline of Japanese martial traditions. Woman-owned and operated, Chief Instructor Ea Murphy has studied aikido since 2000 in both the US and Japan.
