Everton Hills Dojo

One Saturday morning – Aikido in stills

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere 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.
