SOME ANSWERS TO COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS BEFORE TRYING YOUR FIRST CLASS
DO I NEED TO PRE BOOK A CLASS?
For the club session, you do not need to pre-book a class.
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?
There is no upper age limit and the lower age limit is 18. We teach adult martial arts that are unsuitable for children and are only insured for adult students.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR AND BRING? HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?
Bring loose plain clothes suitable for moving freely in, you do not have to bring anything else with you in order to train. As with any physical activity, ensure that you are hydrated and it is best not to indulge in heavy food a couple of hours before training.
The most important thing you can do to prepare yourself is to come to the class with a positive attitude, ready to improve yourself.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST CLASS?
Your first class is complimentary. Each club class is a 60 minute session that generally comprises of a warm up, skill practice and kata (forms). Men and women of all levels practice together in the club class. Be prepared to work hard, learn and take away with you, something to work on at home for next time.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PRACTICE?
This is entirely up to you and what you are looking to get out of the training. Some students practice once a week and others attend every session and the workshops. Whatever your level of commitment, we encourage students to practice the forms ( kata ) at home that they learn and study in class.
Unlike many Aiki styles, we teach kata that are increasingly challenging through the grades. This allows you to take the practice home and continually improve skill, fitness, flexibility, power and harmonious movement.
To become an expert martial artist, it must become a way of life. How much a part of your life you make it, is your choice. The rewards on this journey of self discovery are the greatest ones of all.
