Children’s Workshop: Wooden Sword and Staff

O Sensei developed Aikido techniques from sword and staff movements. Developing a boken (sword) and bo (staff) practice is a great way for students to enhance their open hand training and to stay in touch with their Aikido practice when taking time off from the mat. The class will include boken and bo forms as well as throwing with the weapon and take away techniques.

Requirements: 

  • 9 years old and above. 
  • Solid orange belt and above. (Orange stripe with Sensei’s permission.)
  • Ability to focus on details.

The dojo will supply boken and bo, which can also be purchased. We will train outdoors if weather permits.

Workshop Fee: $35
