Shohei Juku Akido

Saturday, 12:30–1:00pm, Demo Area

Aikido is a holistic practice combining physical techniques with mental discipline. Using powerful circular movements, aikido techniques embody the principle of non-resistance, wherein the defender moves in complete harmony with the attacker, bringing the conflict to a peaceful conclusion for both. Shohei Juku Aikido Canada was established to promote the art of Aikido as practiced by Morito Suganuma Sensei (Aikikai 8th dan). Shohei Juku Canada represents the Canadian branch of Suganuma Sensei’s organization, which is based in Fukuoka, Japan. In addition to offering Aikido classes to all levels of interested students, their dojo hosts a yearly seminar with Suganuma Sensei in Vancouver.

This demonstration will include:
Warm-up exercises
Akido techniques

土曜日、午後12時半~午後1時 デモンストレーション・エリア
