The monthly weekend intensive sessions that BKS will be hosting during 2018 are as follows:-
Weapons Intensive: 2nd Saturday of the Month from 13:30pm to 17:30pm.
This Saturday intensive weapons session with Bob MacFarland, 6th Dan, Shinshin Toitsu Aikido will be providing a comprehensive programme of weapons practice. Training with weapons helps to align body movements and teaches us how to fully extend Ki.
Movements derived from weapons training are relevant to aikido and you will gain deeper understanding of the art as a whole. Improve your aikido at all levels, and if you are preparing for the higher grade examinations these sessions are essential. This will then be followed by an optional session of Chanting from 5:00pm to 5:30pm.
Ki Intensive (Japanese yoga) 3rd Saturday 13:30am to 15:30pm this session is open to all.
The Ki intensive is a light exercise based class suitable for everyone interested in learning about Ki and achieving the optimum state of mind and body unification.
You will learn through unification of mind and body how to achieve an unshakeable state to become naturally strong and relaxed. Other tools such as, Ki Meditation, Ki Breathing, Oneness Rhythm exercises and Ki exercises for health are introduced to develop Ki and to achieve natural posture and movement for improving health and well-being.
Very simple Ki tests are conducted and you will be able to experience your Ki and prove to yourself just how powerful mind and body unification can be.
