Join us for a presentation by members of Kupuna Aikido (KuA) illustrating safe falling techniques rooted in the principles and philosophies of Aikido.  Learn mental and physical strategies that may help to prevent a fall and also reduce the risks of falling.

Kupuna Aikido is a 501(c)3 organization made up of volunteer senior Aikido instructors whose mission is “To empower Hawaii’s kupuna with Aikido-based philosophies to preserve and protect their mobile independence.”
