There are plenty of blogs on the internet devoted to reports about Aikido seminars and other special events. However, what is not seen so often, are blogs dedicated to a regular Aikido class. That is, the type of class most of us train at each week.
This month’s blog is about one such class that I lead at Everton Hills Dojo on the outskirts of Brisbane, Australia. The date: Saturday, 7 September 2013.
I was going to write a detailed overview of the class. Then I thought, “what the heck”, a picture (or in this case a photo) paints a 1000 words, so I did a photo library instead.
When you look at the pics, keep in mind most of us are over 35 (some into our 50’s), hold full-time jobs and practice Aikido around our life commitments. Also, those without a hakama (i.e. the black Japanese pants) have been practising less than 2 years.
All in all – I think we do pretty well.
