Training outside dojo

Hi,

I am a beginner in aikido and i really enjoy doing aikido that i can do it every day without feeling bored.However my dojo training is only once a week and an hour long.Also i am now having my holidays which is six months long and i want to spend this six months doing aikido but as i've said my aikido training in the dojo is limited.I am wondering if i can self-train in aikido in beetween my aikido training in the dojo and i would really appreciate any suggestion regarding training aikido outside dojo time.Thanks in advance.


Regards,
AB

There are a couple of things you can do alone. Practice body movements is the easiest to do alone. Practice tenkan, irimi tenkan etc. You can practice suburi (with weapons). You can do a lot of the techniques with an imaginairy partner. You can read books.

Try the exercises demonstrated on www.bodymindandmodem.com

The "ki trainig". These components will develop basic skills that are the foundation for even the most advanced aikido techniques.

I would also recommend doing the exercises in the excellent book "Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere". These exercises are the basis for a lot of Aikido moves and you will see a lot of overlap with the Ki Training website suggested by Mr. Bogin.

I believe both volumes of information are derived from Tohei Sensei's work.

Run a mile to an open field with ken in hand. Do 100 sword cuts, stretch, rock and roll, tumble on the ground. Fifty push-ups, sit-ups, squats. Stretch. More forward and backward rolls. A hundred more sword cuts. Run a mile back with ken in hand.

Next time, do it with a friend.

The time after that, practice ikkyo with him.

You will become the toughest in the world!

For a beginner, I'll second practising rolls. Put some blankets on top of each other on the floor, and make suer you have no sharp corners around. I did it. Being able to roll on this slightly harder surface was great for my confidence.
