Online Class Saturday April 11 at 3:00pm


This will be a Facebook live event, please follow us to receive a notification when the class starts, if you do not have a Facebook please sign up and follow us @martialwaydojo OR

As a result, we would like to try out a one hour online class this Saturday March 21 at 3:00pm. We are going to execute it through a Facebook live event and there is no cost for the class. Use your Facebook account, or create an account if you don’t have one, and go to our page @martialwaydojo. In the spirit of social distancing and safety, we will work on solo practice or things that each of us can practice by ourselves without a practice partner. Part of the practice will be using the boken (wooden sword) or the jo staff. If you don’t have those, then simply use the stick part of a broom or mop, the tube of a vacuum cleaner, etc. There are a lot of options, just remember to be aware of your surroundings and don’t hit anything!

Training with these weapons actually improves your martial arts training by helping you to:

develop a strong posture and martial stance
move with your hands in your power center (between your hips and shoulders)
move your entire body as a unit to maximize power
improve your calm and composure

For those who cannot attend the online class, we will make it available for you to view it later, but we would really like to have class together so if you can make it, please join us Saturday at 3pm. We’re also considering some videos during the week to add to the practice. If the online class works, we’ll do it again next Saturday 3pm. Please let me know if you can make it, if you have any thoughts or ideas, or if you can contribute in any way.

We don’t give up, and we don’t just survive….we find a way to thrive. And we are here for each other. We are the Martial Way clan and we stick together. So let’s kick it up a notch and boost our training. Like me, you may find that practicing with the weapons enhances your technique.

See you soon….looking forward to it!
