Geek Physique Jo Aikido

Geeks Love Weapons!

Come and learn "The Way of the Warrior"!

The "Jo" is a staff weapon, just over 4 feet long, and was used as a training tool by the Samurai of ancient Japan.  Jo techniques allow one to control and subdue an opponent using non-lethal applications, which is why Japanese police forces train with it today.  Jo work also develops poise, balance flexibility, and self-confidence.

This course, taught by certified Black Belt Instructors from the Shuharikan Dojo (St. Paul MN) will focus on spatial awareness, breathing, basic movements, and striking/thrusting movements, in both individual and paired exercise.  This course is designed for low to moderate impact and no prior weapon or martial art experience is required.

***PLEASE do not RSVP for this class.  If you wish to attend, RSVP to the FIRST class session Scheduled on November 6th.  There is a course fee that must be paid in advance.  You will be contact by the organizer and once funds are paid, you will be automatically RSVP's for this session.

    Excellent class as always! It was fun, and a little bit instructive to actually hit something with the staff. I have a lot more work to do!

    This was an amazing class! We went through so many techniques, and it was just such a fun crowd with which to practice.
