Christian Noll so skillfully injects humor into every training session that you might not realize how much you’ve learned until you’re done for the day.
Since starting at Arundel Aikikai 10 months or so ago, I have not had a single bad experience. The more advanced students never begrudge working with a beginner, instead helping to further enhance the good instruction that Christian provides. The environment is low-pressure so that I’ve never felt bad for having trouble with a technique or not remembering something from a previous session. At the same time, I feel like I’m learning a lot in every lesson.
I would definitely recommend taking aikido here, no matter who you are or where you are in life.
