Watching Class

Watching Class

The best way to understand Aikido is to do it yourself.

But it is also helpful to experience the atmosphere of the Dojo, and get a sense of what training is like and how classes are conducted.

Spectators are welcome.

Etiquette

Study of proper Budo etiquette is an important part of Yoshokai Aikido, and helps create a positive, bright Dojo atmosphere.

While no one is ever forced to conform to etiquette practices, many visitors to the Dojo do notice that everyone seems to be smoothly following some unspoken rules–and they feel like the only ones who don’t know what to do!

Many ask for a simple list of etiquette hints to help them feel more comfortable.  Please click the link below if you are interested.
