Impact Hub Kyoto
Mind, Body and Spirit in Japanese Martial Arts
The focus of the class is to reconnect
our mind, body and spirit
through the wisdom passed down from
the ancestors of the arts.
What you will learn
You will reset to proper usage of your body and you will experience improved balance along with the benefits of exerting the least amount of effort necessary to perform any given task with learning Japanese Martial Arts, .
The classes begin with still and moving meditation, followed by stretching and specialized warm up to facilitate proper movement and usage of the entire body.
The lessons are taught mainly in English to provide a unique multicultural learning experience.
More details about the class
Systematically practicing footwork and striking/defensive techniques as well as sword and staff techniques performed in kata make up the basis for the class. The practical and various applications of all techniques are integrated into lessons. After the techniques are sufficiently performed the class moves back into the stillness of meditation before finishing. Participants are often left with an energized spirit and feeling of a relaxed physical being.
To whom we recommend this class
In general, this class is open for people of all ages and experience levels, however it is especially recommended for those interested in improving their health and spirit while being engaged in a multicultural atmosphere. The lessons are also recommended for those interested in learning effective self-defense tactics. The innate power held in the simple movements of walking, standing, and sitting serve as the energy source for most techniques therefore the body movements learned are easily applied to improve daily life.
