Come and meet with a one of a kind Aikido master. Tavern owner during the night, he transforms his space into a hidden dojo during the day. His philosophy is that no matter who you are and what is your purpose, Aikido will help you achieve it. He teaches to young and old, strong and week, boys and girls alike. Whether you want to build your strength, or get flexible, develop your mind or defend yourself, he will find ways to help you through Aikido. Come and meet him and his disciple for a private lesson in this unique place and discover a hidden face of Japanese martial arts.
After meeting up with your guide and interpret for the day, you will get to the dojo. The dojo (training hall) you are visiting is unique because it is used for lessons during the day, but it becomes a Japanese tavern at night.
Once you arrive at the dojo, your local host, an Aikido master, will welcome you. After a brief introduction, you will spend 1.5 hours on practicing the movements you can use for self-protection. You will be accompanied at all time by your guide and interpreter that will help you talk freely to your hosts.
After the lesson, you will have 30 minutes to an hour to chat with the master and relax. This is a chance for you to ask him questions you may have about his life, Aikido or anything at all.
