We are all preparing for our bi-yearly club grading in May and we have an open hour for grading practice on Mondays from 7:30 to 8:30.
This is not a class but more training session in which you turn up and have run through what you need with a partner.
I will there to help out and give advice but not to teach for the whole hour.
If your interested then let the other students know and turn with a partner or take a chance on seeing who else is on the mat.
Remember were only 8 weeks away so no excuse to not be ready.
There is nothing better than Sunday morning Aikido...
Of all the classes that we run throughout the week Sunday mornings is my faviorite class, it sets me up for the day and the week ahead.
It's often the class where I get to try out new ideas and things that I want to teach in the week ahead.
Why not come along ...
We are having a club grading on Saturday 18th May 2013. It is open to all club members who are eligible to grade up to and including brown belt (1st Kyu).
If you are interested in grading on this date please make sure that you have the required syllabus, minimum hours and current membership.
You should be working towards what is required for your level.
There is a regular open grading practice session running on Mondays from 7.30pm - 8.30pm which will allow students to practice anything they need for the grading and Tony will be available to offer advice if needed.
The main class will run from 8.30pm - 10pm on Monday evenings and we will continue to deliver Aikido classes throughout the week at the three venues where you also get chance to practice as well.
Good luck with preparing over the coming weeks.
