Aikido is a Japanese martial art that can be practiced by all. Participants may be of any age and range of physical abilities. Even elders more comfortable sitting than walking will benefit from the breathing, meditation and stretching exercises that are taught in this class. We teach the principles of Aikido and explore something many elders experience, reduced balance and increased fear of falling. Learn to improve balance, reduce stress, handle physical and mental conflicts. Bring your mind, body and spirit together in a supportive environment. To register and pay, call 360.586.6181. General Public/Members: $68/$62
Tim Seabold has spent most of his life as a spiritual seeker and mystic. He currently works in the field of construction as a Special Inspector. While growing up he has participated in various martial arts: Boxing, San Soo Kung Fu, Jeetkundo, and Aikido. Aikido or the art of peace has been the most challenging and rewarding practice of them all.
Charles Pailthorp holds a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh. In 1971, he joined the faculty of The Evergreen State College, the first year students enrolled, where he taught interdisciplinary programs for over four decades. Music always has been an important part of his life. Some years ago, as a recent seventy-something, he began practice at Aikido Olympia, discovering the value of practicing philosophy, music, and aikido with the same principles in body and mind.
