Aikido II

This class continues to build directly on the basic aikido teachings and philosophy to create greater centered and calm response to conflict in a martial encounter or in our everyday, personal lives. Relaxed, nonaggressive learning is emphasized. Greater stamina of body and attention is developed. We support our embodied experience by reading and reporting on texts of aikido history, philosophy, and technique. We study the practice and ideas of other contemporary sensei on video and visits to seminars. We write papers and journals to enhance our mental reflection and insight on the complexity of our training experience. Cross-listed as TRA210.
