Our practice focuses on movement from the center in a spiraling and flowing manner, emphasizing the need to blend with the attacker to provide the energy for the technique. We strive to provide an environment that is both safe and enjoyable to all who wish to join us on our journey.

If you would like to begin training with us, or if you have any questions regarding our Aikido community, please contact Jay Lindholm or stop by and visit. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have as well as share our aikido experiences with you.

On Tuesday November 25th Dixon Mena tested for Ikkyu.  As typical, we started with high energy training during the first class to ensure Dixon was perfectly warmed up for his kyu test.  Throughout his test, Dixon maintained a good posture, demonstrating each technique appropriately for his level.  Dixon did especially well on his Kumitachi.  Awesome job Dixon!

Special thanks to our members for helping during the preparation as well as during the kyu test. Well done by all!

On Sunday November 16th we had a kyu test that started with a fast paced class during the first hour to ensure the kyu test candidate was well warmed up for his test.

Following the fun class, Tony Gaddis tested for Nikkyu, where he performed nicely.  Tony maintained a good pace during his test, moving smoothly through each of the required techniques and maintaining proper posture.  Tony did especially well on his randori.  Awesome job Tony!!

Special thanks to our members for helping during the kyu test prep as well as providing the lively ukemi during the kyu test. Awesome job by all!
