Basics Class (Adults / Teenagers, minimum 5th kyu)
This class is open to all ranks and emphasizes basic movements including footwork, ukemi (falling skills), and basic techniques.

Techniques are presented at a pace which allows beginning students to develop an understanding of movement with the emphasis on balance, coordination, and stability. As the students become more comfortable with their movement, basic techniques can be practiced more fluidly and dynamically.

This class is open to all ranks and all are encouraged to attend regularly. Beginners can use this class to "get their feet wet," and intermediate-level students can use this class to reinforce their basics. Middle-kyu level and yudansha (blackbelts) are encouraged to attend to train with the beginners.

General Class (Adults & Teenagers, minimum 4th kyu))
This class is more dynamic than the basics class, although basic principles of techniques are still covered regularly. Techniques are presented at a more advanced level, and multiple variations of the techniques are introduced. Also, development of "blending" with the attack is emphasized in these classes (versus static attacks.

Due to the dynamic nature of the techniques, the development of supple and effective ukemi is also stressed. As the students advance in their level of practice, Henkawaza (switching techniques), Randori (practice with multiple partners, Jiu-waza (freestyle), and Kaishewaza (reversing techniques) may be incorporated.

This class is open to all ranks and all are encouraged to attend regularly. Beginners can use this class to "get their feet wet," and intermediate-level students can use this class to reinforce their basics. Middle-kyu level and yudansha (blackbelts) are encouraged to attend to train with the beginners.

Children's Class (5 yrs. to 11-yrs-old)
This class is tailored to meet the needs of young children for learning the art of Aikido. Warm-ups and drills are designed to stimulate coordination, awareness, flexibility, stamina, and strength appropriate for their growing minds and bodies. Techniques are taught with their growing joints in mind. Discipline, respect, and perseverance are emphasized as part of this curriculum. Of course, safety is always a pinnacle concern for this group.

Parents of students are encouraged to get on the mat with their children to enhance the learning experience of both.

Weapons Class
The weapons portion of class is included with the regular adults classes. The weapons used in these classes are: the bokken (wooden sword), the jo (wooden staff), and the tanto (wooden knife). This aspect of training emphasizes: weapon handling, footwork with the weapon, weapon-to-weapon techniques, empty hand-to-weapon techniques, and ukemi with the weapon. More advanced students will work with multiple weapons attacks as well.
