Training

Our dojo offers training opportunities for beginners and advanced students alike. Along with adult classes Bermuda Aikikai offers two classes, Kohai (beginners and little ones)  class and a Sempai (older with some experience) kids class. A great variety of instructors under Shihan Collins Smith instruction offer a unique blend of quality, tradition and innovation at the dojo.

 

In Aikido, as in virtually all Japanese martial arts, there are both physical and mental aspects of training. The physical training in Aikido is diverse, covering both general physical fitness and conditioning, as well as specific techniques. Because a substantial portion of any Aikido curriculum consists of throws, beginners learn how to safely fall or roll. The specific techniques for attack include both strikes and grabs; the techniques for defense consist of throws and pins. After basic techniques are learned, students study freestyle defense against multiple opponents, and techniques with weapons.
