The Aikido Shindokan Schedule accommodates beginners and advanced students three times per week:
Wednesday … 8:00-9:00 pm
Sunday … 9:00-10:00 am
Friday … 7:30-8:30 pm
All classes in the Aikido Shindokan Schedule are taught by the Chief Instructor, Chris Johnston Shihan. In the few cases when Johnston Shihan cannot be available, classes are always taught by one of the other Senior Instructors — Gagliano Shihan or Zakaria Sensei.
Students of every level are encouraged to attend any of the classes offered. There are generally no restrictions.
Beginning students are taught by senior instructors only. The techniques are taught in an easy to comprehend, step-by-step manner. Throughout this instruction, beginners are gradually taught all of the basic movements, basic falling, and basic techniques. Only when they are comfortable with these will they be introduced to more advanced requirements.
Special classes are offered throughout the schedule for weapons training and for senior level classes.
