The class structure at Aikido Suenaka-Ha Ashland is quit simple; everyone practices in the open class format. The subject matter is not practiced according to one’s rank. We do not offer beginner nor advances classes or classes with special themes. We believe that everyone learns best by practicing with students of all skill levels.
The warm-up procedure varies, but usually involves 15-30min of static stretching and calisthenics.
The falling techniques are called ukemi and are designed to teach the aikidoka how to fall properly. Students learn how to fall from a from a seated position, kneeling position as well how to fall forwards, backwards and other unsuspected positions.
The taiso exercises done each class are the very building blocks of our techniques, designed to coordinate our minds and bodies.
Each class will consist of jo and/or bokken kata practice. These are the katas of Aikido, developed directly from sword and weapons practices. They purpose is to teach us grace and fluidity, and help us to understand that our empty hand techniques originated from weapons techniques.
We regularly practice defense against knife, sword and staff.
Suenaka Sensei incorporated all of O’Sensei’s teaching in his self-defense. The result is a style, combined with his extensive experience in real-world self-defense. The result is a martial art that is “street effective’ yet respectful of all living things. During each class we practice the basic Aikido techniques in order to become proficient in this unarmed form of self defense. These basics techniques are designed to momentarily distract or off-balance an attacker in to get away.
We further enhance our study of Aikido by attending Summer camp at Cheraw State Park in Cheraw S.C., the annual Hombu Seminar. At these events, student from the affiliated dojos come together to learn directly from Sensei Suenaka as well as his senior students. We also attend seminars lead by Sensei Suenaka which are held throughout the year at various affiliated dojos
Promotions are based on attendance, ability to perform techniques, ki testing and more importantly, development of character and attitude. Requirements are the same for both men and women. Rank promotion is usually held once a year and there are five belt ranks prior to black belt. However, students enjoy the art so much that rank in or of itself becomes secondary to the sheer joy of practice.
