Thanet Aikido Visits The Vikings

Written by admin on April 21, 2016. Posted in News

On Wednesday 20th Broadstairs Viking ESU were able to experience an evening of intensive exercise with instructor Martyn and student Chris from Thanet Aikido. The first activity of the evening proved that size is not everything!

During the session the explorers were led through a series of breathing exercises, warm up and basic Aikido routines before seeing more complex locks, holds and throws demonstrated by the instructors. The explorers were also shown some routines involving traditional wooden sword skills.

Aikido was a new experience for all the explorers and leaders, some of whom are now keen to pursue it further for their Chief Scout and Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

Big thank you to Thanet Aikido for an educational and fun evening.
