@DaveLiepmann Yes. The 10 kumi jo requires contact with other jo. As well as the 13 count Jo kata with partner. We do a lot of Jo partner practice, which is why it needs to be sturdy.

The group is 18+ adults in community college. Most of them are 18 or 19.

@stslavik They receive a letter grade for the class. It is participation based, and they have to demonstrate a few basic things at the end of the semester.

comment Are Aikido movies on the internet helpful for beginners?
I decided not to make this an answer, but as to style: In the beginning you learn the style of your instructor, and it is important to have consistency while you learn all the basic moves. After a while you will start to figure out variations that work better for you. When this starts to happen it is good to reach out and go to seminars or other places to get exposed to different styles. Eventually, the Aikido that works for you will become your style. The style your instructor teaches is likely the style that works for him.

comment AiKiDo - is there a good translation for all the terms?
That link is interesting to me because I trained with Dave Iannucci before he moved away.
