TAMU Aikido | Martial Arts | Bryan/College Station, Tx

Aikido is about blending rather than struggling. It is a "discipline of coordination" that combines timing and technique, rather than brute strength and size, to find harmony in conflict. Aikido is highly effective as a form of self-defense for men, women and children of all shapes and sizes, and provides a great workout!

TAMU Aikido is the only club of its kind within about 75 miles of the Bryan/College-Station area, and features outstanding biweekly two-hour training sessions with Sensei Michael Uehara (Third degree black belt). Uehara Sensei is a  member of the Yokosuka Aikikai Aikido Shunyoukai. TAMU Aikido is directly under the umbrella of Masuda Aikido Dojo in Saitama, Japan.

Individuals of all levels, from beginner to advanced, may participate.

 

We hold classes at Montoya's Shorin Kempo Karate school.  Hanshi Montoya holds advanced degrees in several martial arts and also teaches children's classes and beginner adults.

Spring 2014 Welcome Back


Ladies and Gentlemen,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break.  It is time to gear up for our Spring semester!

This year we have a number of things on our slate.  

First and foremost, we are participating in the Spring MSC Open House on Sunday Jan. 19th.   It would be a pleasure to spend this day recruiting new members with you.  Please look on our facebook page and let us know when you can help out.

 

Second, we are using a new curriculum and the club is very excited to be able to make it available to the members!  Now, we can all work on our next rank requirements even at home.  This will be published in the TAMU Aikido member Handbook which will be available here and on our facebook page.  We will also have a few copies at the dojo.  

 

Third, we will be participating in The Big Event this year.  There are not many details yet on this but stay tuned for more info.

Lastly, we have updated our fee schedule in order to bring solvency to the club finances.  Please check our Membership page to see our new fee schedule.

 

Thanks and gig'em,

Fall 2013 Classes Coming Soon!

Howdy Aikidoka!

 

The summer is coming rapidly to a close and the Fall semester is approaching.  There are several things that need our attention as school starts up again.

First, Dr. Aaron Hill and Vahid Faghihi, will be testing for their shodan on August 17th, 2013.  Come back to College Station early so we can all go to the Woodlands dojo and help our friends out by being uke!   Please put it on your calendar and check the facebook page.

 

Second,  We have put ourselves in the Gig'em Week pamphlet for this fall.  We are sponsoring a self defense class on Monday August 19th, 2013 for anyone who is interested.  This is a great tool for our club to recruit with.  please show up in force to help Sensei black and Sensei Uehara with this class.

 

Third, and not least, is the MSC Open House.  This is the big one.  most of our new students come from this event.  It is September 1st in the MSC. We will have a demo time and we will pass more information along as it becomes available.

 

Thanks and gig'em
