Description of Class

There is a concession available for this course for people: Under 25s, over 65s or in full time unemployment. About the course The Shodokan system is superbly structured to develop technical understanding; fully engaging your mind and body and learning to work with your partners in cooperation rather than confrontation. Over the six weeks of our course, you will get to know how your body works both gently and at pace, studying basic and applied posture and techniques, the mental approach to practice, the meaning of win-win and properly engaging with your partners in learning. This is a great opportunity to gain or regain confidence in your body’s capabilities. It will encourage you to gently push your boundaries and rediscover natural, effective power and energy. Please wear comfortable, cool clothing Any questions about the practice contact Paul Bonett - sussexaikido@gmail.com Your tutor: Paul started his aikido career in 1979, originally practicing under Brian Elgood, now deceased.
