Re: senior project idea... Aikido Demonstration?

Hi Ryan,

Good luck with your project. One suggestion for the demo...make most of it an introduction to a normal class at your dojo...show the warm ups, explain what the goals of them are, show the ukemi practice, again explain, show basic movements and explain, then relate that to the actual waza.

I've participated in a few demos that followed that sort of format...experienced MAists and newbies alike felt that that made for a better introduction to the art than the slam bam thank you maam demos.

Just a suggestion,
Best,
Ron
