Karate Jutsu - Taiso - TAISO CLASSES - THE ART OF GENTLE EXERCISE
WHAT IS TAISO?
Taiso is a form of gentle exercise that is based on Karate. It consists of modified Karate kata that are performed as a form of moving meditation.
We run gentle exercise classes that are suitable for people of all ages and levels of physical fitness. Our Taiso system has been created by taking and modifying kata from our style of Karate and setting it to calming music. Movements are performed slowly and gently, improving health and relaxation through moving meditation.
Taiso has many health benefits especially as it is not just working out our muscles, but our brain as well, which helps to calm our mental state. Via form training we can improve strength, balance, flexibility and mobility. Our brain is stimulated by learning new patterns, building new neuron connections and reinforcing them by repetition. Natural, deep breathing oxygenates blood, relaxes tension and calms the spirit.
