23. Evergreen Democratic Club presentation on Aikido, a non-violent martial art 5/8 in Burien

What: Evergreen Democratic Club presentation on Aikido, a non-violent martial art
When: May 8, 11:30am-1:00pm
Where: Angelo’s Restaurant
601 S 153rd St
Burien, WA


Pam Cooper from Aikido of West Seattle, will give a presentation at the Evergreen Democratic Club on May 8th. Aikido is a modern nonviolent martial art, with movements based on the principle of non-resistance - when pushed turn, when pulled move in beside. We redirect, not add, force in Aikido.

Aikido is a mental as well as physical discipline, a way of looking at life, understanding ourselves and our relationship to others. Whether doing techniques or dealing with emotional stress, the principle of harmony is applied. The techniques can be adapted for people of differing ages and physical abilities. One of Pam's students started studying Aikido at age 61 and earned a black belt at age 69.

There is a great deal of stress involved in being politically active these days. Aikido could be a great way for us to take better care of ourselves in a wholistic sense.
