In addition to Tae Kwon Do, Balanced Life Skills is pleased to host the Annapolis Aiki Association, a Capital Aikikai affiliated Hombu-Style Aikido club. Testing for rank and special training seminars are hosted at Capital Aikikai in Silver Spring Maryland, an officially recognized dojo by Hombu in Japan. The Aikido club at Balanced Life Skills trains in a casual club-atmosphere. Classes generally run longer than Tae Kwon Do classes, and last about an hour and a half. Aikido is available for students ages 12 to adult.
All Aikido classes are taught to all skill levels — everyone is welcome to participate in each class. Classes generally follow the pattern indicated in the table below.
|CLASS DAY||CLASS TIME||CLASS FOCUS|
|Tuesday||7:00 PM – 8:30 PM||Rolling/Falling, Basic Movements|
|Thursday||7:00 PM – 8:30 PM||Application of the Basics|
