Our youth classes have moved to 7-7:45pm on Thursdays at 142 Waterloo Street, Waterloo (the Empowerment Martial Arts facility). We are holding a series of introductory classes starting April 3, 2014. The first two classes are offered free of charge. Classes are $30/month thereafter
Aikido is a purely defensive martial art. We do not teach students how to punch and kick; rather, we teach students how to take the energy from an aggressive opponent and use it to get to safety.
Most of our practice involves working on our techniques in pairs, but we also work on individual skills and falling safely.
Our organization, Kitchener-Waterloo Ki Aikido, is a not-for-profit organization that teaches Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido. We are affiliated with Ki Aikido Ontario and Ki No Kenkyukai in Japan. We run adult classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Waterloo, and Mondays at the YMCA in Cambridge.
We are excited to announce that we have found a new facility at 142 Waterloo Street in Waterloo. We are holding classes from 7-9:30 on Tuesdays and 7:45-9:30 on Thursdays. We are renting space from Empowerment Martial Arts.
For new members, the first two classes are free.
We are no longer holding classes at the Kitchener YMCA; we will continue to have classes on Mondays at 7:30 at the Cambridge YMCA.
We are, however, starting adult classes at The Family Centre in Kitchener (65 Hanson Avenue) to run at the same time as our youth classes (7:30-8:30 on Thursdays). We will be starting on July 11. We are offering two free trial classes. The monthly fee is currently set at $35. The drop-in rate for a single class is $10 (after the first two trial classes).
