Re: Home Learning

I think Home learning sounds like a great idea! Maybe I'll develop a program for that.

Although you do need partners to practice, with technology these days, a home course needs to be developed for Aikido!

For a small fee or a good meal, I'll make home visits & take ukemi

Re: Home Learning

I put your hometown in the dojo finder and did a search within 50 miles. It came up with 3 dojos.

Find out from those dojos who has a saturday class, and if you get once a week instruction, you can practice with your brother or a friend at home. It would be best for them to ride to the dojo and take classes with you.

If you came to practice with me on that basis, I would send you home with specific homework that you could build upon.

The biggest issue raised, which I agree with, is getting off track with your training, not knowing it, and simply building bad habits instead of learning something.

I personally drove 3 1/2 hours each way to train once a month for about 8 years, but it was after I had a black belt, and could incorporate the new lessons on my own. Even with that experience, it was easy to get off track into my own bad habits.

Re: Home Learning

Here's a dojo that looks like it's about 36.7 miles away from you:
