Indoor Ventilation Precautions

In addition to the NYS requirments, indoor classes will only included normal breathing, without the deep breathing used in aerobic exercise. Any aerobic exercise is encouraged for short/high intensity outdoor training. In addition, air purifiers with HEPA filters protecting to .3 microns are used during class and afterwards. Their maximum potential specifications indicate the entire center's airspace can be purified approximately every 5 minutes.

We also have a no touch forehead thermometer for optional use - particularly for children who may not know if they have a fever as easily as adults.

Homework Assignments


Adult Aikido Challenge

Go into the library video page.

In the Larson Sensei section (top left) video #11 (shihonage), note the connection between hands and hips at these points: 13:40 - 15:50, 18:55-19:00, 35:06-35:55, 45:00-46:15. What key points do you notice?

Adult Tai Chi Challenge

In the library under the video page, go to the Larson 2016 video group and look at the last segment for 2018. At 1:18 Larson Sensei talks about a block. If you haven't gotten into chapter 4 yet, compare that to moving to the right after the 10 step opening of the form. Or for chapter 4, comsider it related to the first strike after the first single whip. What are the similarities in principals?
