Multiple Attackers, Monday at 8pm.

One of the basic assumptions in Aikido technique is the ubiquity of multiple attackers. Humans, like many animals, hunt in packs. It is one of those like-it-or-not realties of life. Even in partnered practice we should be aware of this element of our technique. Posture, one-point, along with an almost dis-interest in uke, and a host of other finer points, all provide a tool set for dealing with this reality.

Monday (8/18) night's 8pm class will focus on dealing with multiple attackers.
