Beginners are welcome to attend any session we tailor classes to those present. Classes start with gentle stretching and warming up exercises. During your first sessions you will be taught basic breakfall (ukemi) techniques; blending and avoidance movements. You will also work with other students practising various pinning and projection techniques. The class finishes with a 'cool down' Aikido can be vigorous but classes tend to run at much lower levels particularly so for beginners - it's the quality of the movements that are important.
