Sword and Staff

Aikido is an empty-hand sword technique. The tai sabaki (body movement) of Aikido is based on ancient schools of ken-jitsu (classical sword). Thus, boken and jo training (wooden sword and staff) is an essential part of the ASNJ curriculum. Unlike many schools that have a student wait for this training, ASNJ introduces students to the basics of these Aikido weapons from the very beginning. The Aiki weapons program consists of suburi (solo practices) and partner practices called awase (blending) and kumi (combat). Additionally, there is constant examination of weapons techniques, as they directly relate to the empty-hand partner techniques. Although the class schedule indicates just one weapons class, the boken and jo are used in regular classes as well. Students are encouraged to pursue daily practice of boken suburi and jo kata to supplement and enhance class work.

Basic to all martial art training is the concept of Zanshin, or mindful awareness.

regular practice of meditation will greatly improve the student's understanding of what is termed "the nature of mind." All physical techniques ultimately reflect and rest in this state of present conscious awareness.
