Guided Practice Sessions with Haruo Matsuoka Sensei

Date: first Sunday of each month

Time: 10 – 11:30 AM Pacific Time

Fee: $25 individual session   

For nearly 2 years, Covid-19 had severely restricted the training regiment of all martial artists around the world. In an effort to maximize training opportunities for students under the guidance of Haruo Matsuoka sensei, starting on October 10th, 2021, Aikido Doshinokai Association will begin a subscription based online training series. On the first Sunday of each month, Matsuoka sensei will be conducting a 90 minute guided practice over Zoom, addressing a wide range of aikido training principles and techniques.  

This series will begin its first session with bokken training.  Matsuoka sensei will explain the critical relationship between weapons and empty-handed training. Through the use of bokken kata, kumitachi exercises and tachi-dori techniques, Matsuoka sensei will explain his essential points of training as well as focusing in on critical technical points and common mistakes while performing certain techniques.    

This series is open to aikido students at all levels. Training tools such as bokken, jo and tanto may be required for their correspondent sessions. A training partner is strongly recommended.
