Our Training

Training

Normally we chose either to focus on Aikido or on Taiji. Small cross-over can happens during training. 

Aikido training

We start with a warmup section. Mostly based on Yoshigasaki Sensei sequence. Then we have chosen on of the Tsuzukiwaza and go through the techniques one by one and finish with doing the whole Tsuzukiwaza.
