Start 2022 off right with something new that is good for the body, mind and spirit in a safe, fun environment!
Bee Creek United Methodist Church is hosting a six-week introductory Aikido Martial Arts class in January. The class will be taught by our own Joan Eurey Abdo, an Instructor and First Degree Black Belt at Tenchi One Martial Arts in Austin. She has a passion for sharing her training to empower others with knowledge and confidence.
Aikido, when executed properly, is easy on the body while challenging to the mind. It is as much a philosophy as it is a body of techniques. It emphasizes blending with the energies (or forces) operating within an encounter as opposed to combatting them. Aikido guiding principles include: loving protection of all things, harmony with the universe and minimization of conflict.
Classes begin Thursday evenings from 6 - 7:30 on January 27. Please contact Joanie at 512/261-5035 for further information or to register for this special event. Adults 16 and up (as well as teens 13 to 15 with a participating parent) are encouraged to attend. It promises to be an interesting and fascinating experience!
