I realize that we made a congrats in our the facebook group, but not here in our blog. Congratulations to all Winter quarter kyu rank contenders! Everyone did an excellent job during testing, and over the weeks preceding testing. Utada Kancho’s message and motto for the year is “unshakeable mind”, so let’s take what we’ve learned during this period and step forward with an unshakeable mind to advance our training. OSU
Hi all, this is a friendly reminder that we will not have official class on Friday, May 4th. Be safe, and OSU!
Stop by the martial arts studio at the ARC this week for Try Before You Buy! Aikido class is being held at the normal times: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6:30p to 8p. As with last quarter, we have two sections: the Monday/Wednesday section, and the Friday section. Come try Aikido! For continuing students, we will begin a new course of training this week, so come by to start the quarter on the right foot (then left foot, then shite uke change, Hajime!)
Congratulations to Kyler McLaughlin (6th kyu), Thomas Lee (6th kyu), Luis Arellano (9th kyu), and Hannah Holland-Moritz (9th kyu) for their great performance of techniques last week! Great job!!
Today we introduced our new students to kamaemi no kamae, tai sabaki, 95 degree pivot, and kotegaeshi. We also covered back breakfall #1. We then studied kotegaeshi from a few different perspectives, including one-hand grasp, both-hands grasp, and cross-hand grasp. Stay tuned for more kotegaeshi this week!
Join us for the 2011 Fall Quarter Try Before You Buy at the ARC!!
