Aikido is a dynamic, traditional Japanese art that is effective when applied to self-defense and also serves as an art of self-development. The Aikido course is designed to encourage focus, balance, respect and harmony within the body, mind and spirit by developing a repertoire of coordinated, flowing body movements to neutralize aggression with minimal harm. At the end of each quarter, there is a chance to earn your belts.
**Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will be Try Before You Buy during Week 2 of SSII, August 12 - 16th.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu emphasizes taking an opponent to the ground and utilizing ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint locks and chokeholds also found in numerous other arts with or without ground fighting emphasis. The premise is that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are somewhat negated when grappling on the ground.
Hap means coordination, Ki, power or energy and Do is the way or a path to follow through life. Hapkido is a Korean self defense system, not a sport. The system specializes in joint locks, throws, pressure points, submission techniques, kicking and strikes. Students will learn to harness their own energy (or chi) to defend themselves from any attacker. Through Hapkido students learn to maintain a healthy lifestyle through exercise, creating a unity between the mind, body, and spirit. The study of Martial Arts is a life long process, something that is never truly finished, that said, when the student is finished they should know themselves. However at the end of one quarter, people should be fairly skilled in the basics of self-defense such as fundamental strikes, kicks, throws and falls, plus escapes from holds and chokes.
No experience necessary. Please bring water.
