To a visitor to our club there are probably two characteristics to our training which stand out:
- Our acknowledgement that the technique practised in the Dojo will not be the same as those that would be used in real life.
- The emphasis on practising by oneself (Hitoriwaza)
With the current restrictions that most of us are experiencing at the moment with social distancing and self-isolation, Hitoriwaza has become the only way to continue practising.
To aid this practise, we will be continuing our classes virtually via video conferencing with Zoom. We will be sticking to our current teaching schedule but will be focusing on Aikido and Kenkodo that can be practised by yourself.
