Introductory Aikido Class Series for Women

Learn the fundamentals of Aikido in a safe, supportive, fun class designed for the complete beginner!

Women's Beginner ClassFour Saturdays:
June 1, 8, 15, & 22

Studio Twelve,
2525 Eighth Street
in Berkeley

For women ages 14 & up

In this four-class series, we will explore the fundamentals of aikido practice.  Building up our alignment, grace, flow, and power leads to a more creative, calm, empowered life.  Our natural confidence and true radiant power can shine through when we override the flight-fight-freeze reactions that keep us stuck.

With practice, we can reprogram our responses to conflict on a bodily level, and bring our best selves forth even in the most difficult situations.

This series is designed for the complete beginner!  Women with prior aikido experience are also welcome.

Registration cost is $50 for the 4-class series. If you’re registered for this series, you may also attend any of Aikido Shusekai’s weekly classes during the month of June, at no additional charge.
