Youth classes – new time and location

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

More information:

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.
