How Aikido Supports Montessori Education, a presentation by Brandon WilliamsCraig, Ph.D., chief instructor at Free Aiki Dojo, at Golden Bears Aikido at UC Berkeley, and here at The Renaissance School, will be presented on Monday, March 19 at 7:00 p.m. at 3668 Dimond Avenue in Oakland.

Using traditional aikido training, theater, and facilitation techniques to extend aiki principles into conflict resolution, Brandon offers a method called Martial Nonviolence, or MNv. Using MNv, he creates the Peace Practices curricula designed for specific communities.

The Peace Practices curricula offers an aikido-based developmental environment in which children learn to practice peace with their bodies and thoughts as though peace itself were a martial art.

The public is invited to this presentation to learn more about the curriculum and how aikido supports Montessori education. The event will include time to ask Brandon questions. For more information, or to RSVP, please contact us at info(at)therenaissanceschool(dot)org.
