Weapons Class

On Sunday mornings, Charlotte Hatch (4th Dan) teaches weapons at City Aikido from 10am until 11am.

Charlotte's classes explore the origins of Aikido as a means of self defense and explain the movements which are inherent in Aikido.

Naturally, they teach one how to use a bokken (wooden sword) and a jo (5ft wooden staff). They also introduce the student to the notion of safe distance (or mai) - how far one should be from one's partner.

Each class is charged with positive energy and fun and always conducted in a mutually respectful environment where safety is the primary concern.
