Radio Taiso 55+

Radio Taiso 55+

Are you 55+? Are you Bored?

The JCCC invites you to participate in a new series of virtual workshops.

Join us and learn the traditional Japanese exercises that are RADIO TAISO.

In Japan, NHK Radio broadcasts these exercises early each morning. There are many different series of exercises, but they are simple and easy to do and can be done by all ages and all abilities. With a background from calisthenics, they are good for your health and physical fitness, but can be done in a very short time period. Many Japanese families gather in parks during the summer and do the exercises together.

In cooperation with the NJCC, the JCCC will be offering a series of 5 free classes from 9:00 to 9:30 am EDT on Fridays from July 16 to August 13. Led by Nao Aizawa, a trained dancer and teacher of Radio Taiso in California, participants will learn Radio Taiso no.1.

Instruction will be bilingual, in both English and Japanese.
