Weekly aikido basics classes cover the fundamentals of rolling, falling, footwork, and techniques. Although these classes provide an essential foundation for beginners, they are important for all levels of practitioner. Please arrive at the dojo 15 minutes prior to class and be ready to leave your shoes at the door.
