Starting any new Martial Art can be an exciting time, The thought of doing Martial Art techniques like Steven Seagal, Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee or Chuck Norris, making lots of heads turn, when people say things like “Wow!!! Did You See That”?! seems a very inviting thought. However with any new Martial Art, it can also mean a bit of doubt and uncertainty.
But this is where I can help you.
You have to treat your Martial Art like a full-fledged job and not just an on the side hobby. This means when you turn up for class you have fun but follow a sound process and really focusing on training…
It also means that you don’t want to fly by the seat of your pants. You want to have a plan in place that makes success not only possible but enjoyable.
You know you have what it takes to make your dreams come true. You just needed to practice things.
It’s the most common question I get from new people. They want to be able to do Martial Arts but do think they will be able to do it.
Does that sound like you?
But here’s the good news.
My knowledge, effort, time, and experience all work to your advantage, because I used to be you but I’m here to give you a proven blueprint – so that you can get started quickly, efficiently, without fuss, and be up and training in a Yoshinkan Aikido in no time!
You’ve got to get your Martial Art started the right way. You must learn how to work smarter, using training techniques and exercises that gets results, instead of “spinning your wheels" doing what you’ve always done or just sitting around waiting for the Martial Art to be learnt magically without you working hard at it.
Or if you’re already successful, then do what all successful fitness people do – decide to better your best. Get that extra edge. Take it to the next level.
Decide right now to make a change and create the kind of body and lifestyle you deserve.
This is a decision you will be very, very glad you made – I guarantee it.
The Yoshinkan 'House for Cultivating the Spirit' was founded after World War Two. This style of aikido is occasionally called the hard style because the training methods are a product of the gruelling period Soke Shioda spent as a student of Ueshiba.
Yoshinkan Aikido has some 150 basic techniques which are practiced repeatedly; these enable the student to master the remaining ones, which total some 3000 overall.
The Yoshinkan style of Aikido emphasises the self-defence aspect of the art. It is more practical and gruelling than the other styles of Aikido and to an outsider may appear part of a violent Japanese tradition.
Yoshinkan Aikido is not a sport. Aikido is the development and strengthening of the body and mind, and the practical side of Aikido must never be forgotten. However, Aikido is for all, irrespective of age, sex, race or culture.
We visited Stafford Martial Arts Academy to join their 2 hours training session. It was a great session as well as wonderful hospitality after the training. My first impression of Jay sensei was that he was a "scary man" so I made sure that I stayed away from him on the mat. Despite my effort to avoid him, one day at a seminar, I ended up in the same group as him. When it was my turn to be his uke, for a throwing technique, came, I prayed to god not to get myself hurt.... It was a major shock that his throw was not painful!!! It was strong but not rough at all. Since that time, I enjoy training with him and his students. They are like a one big family and I am very happy about the way they welcomed us. We will definitely return to train with you all. Osu
