How does a beginner train with experienced students?

Aikido of Petaluma has existed for over 35 years, during which time many students have been promoted to  black belt students.  The black belt students work with new students at their own level, and find training with beginners enjoyable and rewarding.  It gives black belt students a chance to review and refine the fundamentals of the art. One learns a lot when one works with new students. One has an opportunity to experience the art through the fresh eyes of a beginner. Beginner students are a treasure and the heart of the school.

Beginners get to see and feel how more experienced students do the techniques, and how they view and practice the art.

It’s a great place for a beginner to get started.
