Aikido Home Training – 3 Basic Jo Patterns to Practice

Hi team!
As we move into week 2 of stage 4 lockdown, we hope everyone is keeping active and healthy!

Today we look at 3 basic jo (wooden staff) patterns that you can practice at home. We have been doing some of these patterns in our online classes (juniors and adults) and we hope this video comes in handy as a reference!

Be sure to practice in a cleared space (we’ve had some light bulb casualties haha) and enjoy getting into the flow of the pattern.

Pattern 1: Figure 8s 00:13
Pattern 2: Four strike thrusting pattern 02:11
Pattern 3: Four strike close range pattern 03:51

See you online and happy training! 🙂
