I've been teaching Aikido for about 20 years now, and I've made it an important point to stay in shape. Teaching means that I don't get to train a full hour or two like my students do and get a really good work out, burn calories, gain strength...all that good stuff that comes with training....maybe that's why so many aikido instructors are overweight!
So I've put together my own training program with running, pushups, sit ups, pull ups and my favorite Rock Climbing! Sometimes I get super lucky and only one or two students show up for class; then I get to train! I love those days.
I put together a vlog detailing one of my workouts. Check it out and please subscribe to my youtube channel:
