As of July 1, 2016, our classes are as follows:
- Aikido Monday 6-7:30 pm
- Judo Monday 7:30-9 pm
- Judo Thursday 6-7:30 pm
- Aikido Thursday 7:30-9 pm
The typical Tuesday night judo class will be cancelled for the summer. Tuesday night judo will restart when Carson Newman fall semester begins.
At this time, we have eliminated any distinction of a beginners and advance class. We may divide classes into two parts depending on who shows up to class. We are also practicing some jodo during the aikido class mostly on Thursday.
We do have frequent weekend workouts, usually Sundays starting about 2 pm. Weekend classes are less structured and the subject matter usually depends on who attends class. We tend to do more drills and randori on the weekends with less formal teaching. While anyone who is a member of the dojo may attend weekend classes, we prefer people to know how to fall if they plan to attend (this is usually about yellow belt level). We post on our Facebook Page weather weekend class is happening or not.
I am often asked about a children’s class. We have taught many children over the years but we do not have a formal children’s class at this time. We do accommodate children as young as middle school age alongside our other students in class. If you would like your child to attend a class please email me through the contact page or drop by the dojo. Thanks.
