Sword in Aikido

Presented by Jim Klar.

Based on the ancient Samurai arts of Japan, Aikido training employs practice with Bokken (wooden practice sword) as well as open-hand training. This workshop features a demonstration and explanation of Tachi-dori (unarmed defender facing an attacker with sword), various sword and bokken Kata (paired practice forms), plus instruction in a form for practice on your own.
