Tameshigiri with Jakub Zeman

The upcoming Saturday (11.11.2017), we will hold in our Dojo a Tameshigiri supervised by Mr. Jakub Zeman, 3rd Dan Tojamaru. Jakub Zeman is prominent euroepan discipe of  Nakagava Sensei, an expert on Japanese swords and recently won a Taikai shuriken, hence he is more than qualified.

If you are interested in Tameshigiri or Japanese martial arts in general, pay our Dojo a visit. There will be a short introduction to technics and there might be a possibility to cut some rolled tatami.

We are looking forward to Saturday. If you would like to join us, please let us know. Sunday training is on regular schedule.

(If you are not entirely sure what Tameshigiri is, you can find out  here(in czech) or there.)

We are back again!!

We hope that you enjoyed holidays at least the same amount as we have and the regular trainings are starting with new school year.

The only change is that sometimes we are not allowed to use the usual entrance into building. In such case we have to use the main entrance into ZS Jeseniova. In case you are planning on droping by please give us a call or let us know via email on so we can easily meet. Times of trainings are still the same: Wednesday 7pm and Sunday 6pm.

We are looking forward to meet you in training!


Special holiday trainings!

Reconstruction of our gym is preventing us from training on tatami. On top of that, our trainer is suffering from trauma of collarbone. We suggest trying something completely different: Lets learn basic steps from boxing!

Don’t be afraid it not anything wild, no fights, no sparring. Just training of basic defensive movements and step from boxing. Step will be demonstrated by Ondra Merta, sportman skilled in Aikido (2nd dan Aikido Aikikai) and in boxing (his last success is winning feather weight in manager extra-league).

Our main focus will be on steps similar to irimi tenkan steps. It is very surprising how similar are steps from peak-a-boo boxing style. Especially when you consider completely different worlds of Aikido and boxing. However, the position when partner is not facing your direction and you are facing his is so favourable, that it lead to development of techniques to create it in both worlds.

If you are interested in this detour from Aikido, or you just want to try something new, we train on the sports ground in front of our gym on 7th 14th of August from 6pm.

Trainings are public – everyone is welcomed – and, moreover, these particular trainings are free!
