Please join us for Kayla Feder Sensei's first visit to Aikido'Ka. Feder Sensei is a terrific instructor and aikidoist. She is, simply, one of the most fun people to train with anywhere, anytime. Enjoy!

What We'll Be Working On:

The difference between a superb aikidoist and everyone else is not athleticism or even many years of practice. It’s understanding and applying the basic principles which underlie all aikido technique. That’s what makes for effective and beautiful aikido. If you’re on the path to becoming a superb aikidoist, then this seminar is for you.

● How and Why Your Ukemi Will Support Great Aikido

Why your ukemi body “shapes” largely control whether you have effective position and can safely stay with your nage. How these body shapes are important for your success as nage.

● How and Why Hand-Center Connection Leads to Powerful, Effective Technique

How your hand-center unification enables you to easily apply aikido principles.

● How and Why the Principle of “Lingering Mind/Live Blade” Enables Real Connection with Your Partner

How Zanshin supports effortless aikido before, during, and after your technique.

● Jo Dori and Tachi Dori

In our last class, we’ll bring it all together and apply these principles to weapons.
