Weldon Mauney Sensei studied under Hiroshi Kato Sensei from 1998-2012. He received his kyu testing, first, second and third degree black belts under Kato Hiroshi Sensei. After Kato Sensei’s passing in 2012, he received his fourth degree blackbelt under Seiji Ido Sensei in 2015. He started Wing Chun initially under Sifu Chris Damiano and for the last six years has been studying under Sifu Gary Lam. His Aikido is both sharp and gentle and characterized by beautiful spirals, efficient footwork, and a joyful concentrated connection with his partners. He is interested in how his Aikido and Wing Chun practices can artfully interact.

Class Theme:

We will be learning the five Jo Kirikaeshi. These may be practiced solo or with a partner. The practice of Kirikaeshi may help improve flow and connection with the Jo. With a partner, distance and timing are also explored.

What to Bring to Class:

Please bring a jo or other kind of stick.

And please wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing you can practice in

Beginners are warmly welcome.

We look forward to practicing with you this Saturday!

Please share this email with any and all you think might like to attend.

Thank you!
