* Advanced or weapons classes may be attended by any student once they have attained and demonstrated an acceptable level of awareness and proficiency with ukemi (receiving techniques).

** Private classes are available.

Classes are designed to provide an atmosphere of learning through constructive practice and application of techniques. Each class begins with a brief warm-up period to help stretch muscles and center one's focus. A class may cover a single or several related techniques. After a short demonstration by the instructor, students will be asked to pair up and practice the techniques with each other. Techniques are practiced at a speed or level of resistance in accordance with the skill and experience of the practitioners. In this manner, beginners and advanced students may both practice the same techniques and often are able to practice with each other.
