The Jo (short staff) and the Boken (wooden sword) are traditional Japanese training weapons. “Aiki” means harmonious energy or loving energy. The movements are non-competitive, there are no tournaments, the movements are typically used as a teaching tool for the art of Aikido (The Way of Harmony) it’s self.
The class will be presented as a solo practice to begin with and a partner practice to work up to. Movements are based on ancient text that actually originate in India passed down to the Chinese and eventually to Japan and interpreted to what Richard Thompson, long time practitioner, will be sharing with the class. There is cooperation between partners, whole body dynamic movement, breathing in coordination with movement. Education to a traditional cultural experience. And of course a healthy warrior spirit to discover.
