    What does a Japanese martial art have to do with Light Sabers and Jedi Knights?
    A lot, actually...Many of the elements of the Star Wars Universe were influenced by Japanese Culture and Traditions, and more than a few CON panels have been built around this topic.
    We here at Geek Physique have taken this notion and turned it into a great excuse for Working Out While Geeking Out!!!! We are teaming up with the Jedi Masters from the Shuharikan Dojo, to offer you this unique opportunity to cultivate your Inner Jedi (or Sith…we don’t judge, villains have feelings too!)

    This course is designed to teach the fundamental techniques of Aikido, while exploring how those elements of the art are related to specific concepts/characters found in the Star Wars Universe. This will be a low-impact class with emphasis on improving balance, flexibility, and coordination, and focusing on the basic skills of martial arts and self-defence.  Younglings, age 15 and up, are welcome for this event, but must be accompanied by a participating adult.

    This is a “package course” of 6 class sessions (Feb 12, 19, 26, Mar 5, 12, 19). Each class session will present new information and techniques which build on the previous week’s lesson. Regular attendance is encouraged. A $27 registration fee is required and covers all 6 classes, including a field trip to the Jedi Training Center (Shuharikan Dojo, St. Paul MN)

    How To Register:
    1) RSVP to the first class session, February 12th, then check you Meetup e-mail over the next 2 days for a confirmation and payment details.
    2) You will be sent a Paypal request for the Registration fee. Please respond to this as quickly as possible.
    3) Once your registration fee is received, you will be automatically registered for the remaining 5 classes.

    If you have any questions, please contact Kerry McCartney directly at http://kerrymac75@gmail.com

    I will more than likely not be able to attend tonight. :( It's a long and treacherous drive to Minneapolis from rural Wisconsin, and I don't think I'll risk it unless the roads get significantly better.
