Join Tacoma Aikikai for an Aikido Camp Intensive for teens age 12+. This 3-day camp focuses on advanced practice for youth with an Orange/Red Belt and higher. We’ll deepen our ukemi (falling), throwing techniques, and weapons work through exercises, challenges, team games, and drills from other types of training. The camp will broaden students understanding of aikido practice through a context of culture and language lessons, while developing teamwork and leadership in a supportive peer environment.
Classes will be held in the dojo and outside at the park. Japanese language lessons and light lunch included. This camp is specifically for advanced teen and youth students with the rank of Orange/Red Belt and higher. (Beginning students can join our all levels camp August 23-25).
Taught by Tacoma Aikikai Chief Instructors, Ea Murphy Sensei and Eric Gillet Sensei, who bring decades of experience (and a wealth fun ideas) from teaching aikido to youth in Europe, Japan, and the US.
