Aikido Weapons class is open to anyone seriously interested in the study of weapons training. If you do not practice Aikido, please meet with the instructor to get permission to attend. This class studies the use of the boken (wooden sword), jo (wooden staff), and tanto (wooden dagger). On a more advanced level, qualified students study Iaido, the art of drawing a steel sword, and weapons taking against “live” blades. Scholarships are available for anyone in financial need.
