As well as the core subjects, we teach a variety of varied skills and disciplines that are fundamental to Martial Artists. Workshops focus on different areas that allows the students to really explore the art beyond the basic syllabus.
For example, we may run a few workshops in Oxford on physical fitness or the art of movement, on strength and power development or a focus on a particular weapon such as the Bo, Jo or Nunchaku. We may focus on Aikido concepts. Other subjects include tumbling and awareness training such as working with multiple opponents, there really is no limit. These workshops give the students a chance to explore and try new areas of Martial Arts to enhance and vary their training.
They are a popular and exciting addition to weekly Aikido and Sword training sessions.
