Aikido is a Japanese Martial Art based on the principles of circular motion and non-resistance against an opponent's force, so that anyone can use it with the least amount of physical force. Etiquette and discipline are required and observed during practice. This class is designed for continuing students of Gail Skinner or those with Aikido experience.

Edward Kardell currently holds the rank of Yodan (4th degree Black Belt) in Aikido and a Fukushidoin Certificate (teaching certificate) from the United States Aikido Federation (USAF).  He began his Aikido journey in the early 80s in New Jersey under Rick Stickles Sensei. He received his Shodan ranking (1st degree Black Belt) in February of 2002. In 2012, he relocated to Tucson and has studied since that time under Gail Skinner Sensei, the previous instructor of this class.
