Like last year the course will cater for those with little Weapons skills and practise to the more experienced the course will be divided into progression groups. So the course is suited from those with a little experience to those that have more experience. Will feature sessions of Kumitachi; Kumijo; a workshop - where you select what you want to learn/practice and a Iai session
This course is not for people who have yet to start practising aikido. You should start in your local club first.
