Aikido: Bokken & Jo
Aikido: "Bokken and Jo" places an emphasis of the study of Aikido in a learning movement, timing
and extending "ki" through an outside wooden object (the bokken or jo), as opposed to a "regular"
22
Aikido class where students learn movement, timing and extending "ki" through them- selves in response to being physically attacked. The bokken and jo are weapons only in a traditional sense, not in a 21st century sense. A course in bokken and jo would actually be safer than the regular class in that no contact is allowed at all, and most of the study involves "kata" (a series of movements that a student does on his/her own, similar to a dance). The course would only be open to those who have previously taken Aikido (or an equivalent), as this is an advanced class. No mats are needed for this class. It is a highly disciplined, mentally challenging activity. A course fee applies.(Check Sis for course offerings/offered periodically).

Brazilian Capoeira
This exciting martial art course is one of the few, if not the only one still in existence, native to
Americans, developed in Brazil by the descendants of African slaves brought there by the
Portuguese during the era of the Atlantic slave trade. Capoeira is characterized by dynamic body
play, kicking, sweeping, takedowns, aggressive feinting and head butt movements. It is played within
a circle of onlookers and fellow participants, called a "Roda". The game is played when two
contestants enter the circle and begin to "ginga" ("to swing" in Portuguese), launching various
attacks, counters and initiating defenses. Class meets at Kim Murray's Karate Academy
([email protected]). RIT does not provide transportation. A course fee applies. (check SIS for

Grading Policies: Individual Course Grading: Wellness for Life course: The grading system currently used by the Center for the Wellness for Life course (A-F and I/W/A) is the same as the academic areas and complies with the Institute's grading policies. This grade is not averaged in to the student's grade point average. The Wellness for Life course is a non-academic graduation requirement for transfer students. (See more information listed above) Wellness activity course: The grading system currently being used by the Center for all activity courses are primarily based on attendance and issued as Pass/Fail only. This grade is not averaged into the student's grade point average. Wellness activity courses are a non-academic graduation requirement. Incomplete Grade An Incomplete ("I") may be given to students who do not fulfill attendance and/or course requirements (due to illness, injury or personal reasons) at the instructor's discretion. The student is responsible for making arrangements with the instructor to complete the course requirements within two academic quarters following the quarter in which the "I" was issued. If not completed within two quarters, the "I" grade is changed to an "F" on the student's academic transcript. Audit Procedures Students wishing to receive an "Audit" grade in a wellness course must obtain approval from the Instructor of the course. Courses taken for "audit" carry no credit and do not apply toward graduation requirements, satisfy prerequisites or count toward determining enrollment status. Generally, students who enroll as an "audits" are wishing to participate in the class primarily for the activity benefits, rather than for credit. An audit form must be submitted for departmental approval prior to the end of the formal add/drop period. Requests for audits will not be accepted after the formal add/drop period has ended. Audit forms are available in the Registrar's office and in the SLC central office (Bldg. 23). Add/Drop/Procedures Students may add or drop wellness education courses during the six-day add/drop period for the fall, winter and spring quarters (Note: See Summer schedule of courses for summer information). Students cannot be added to or dropped from classes after this period ends. Students are NOT automatically dropped from a class if they never attend and are solely responsible for dropping a course during the official add/drop period as established by the Institutes' Office of the Registrar. Students are encouraged to add/drop using SIS. Withdrawal Procedures If a student wishes to drop a wellness education class after the initial six-day add/drop period, they must complete a Withdrawal form. Students can obtain these forms in the Registrar's office, Academic Advisors or in the SLC lobby. This form must be signed by the instructor before it is returned to the Wellness Center office for processing. Students who wish to withdraw must do so by the end of the sixth week of the quarter. If this procedure is not followed accordingly, the student will be issued an "F". Once a student is registered for a class, they are responsible for attending class and fulfilling the requirements of the course or they must follow the proper add/drop/withdrawal process listed above.

Credit by Experience: Retroactive credit may be granted (rarely) for certain independent activities if completed within one year before matriculation at RIT.

Intramural Participation: No credit is granted for intramural sports participation. Medical Excuse: A medical excuse may exempt a student from participation in the activity segment of the graduation requirement, but must still successfully complete First Year Enrichment or Wellness for Life.
