No Classes Tuesday June 14th, 2022 (Chase Corporate Challenge street closures)

The Chase Corporate Challenge is Tuesday June 14th.  The course closes down and makes a general mess out of the area immediately around our dojo and the police tend to close streets even earlier than posted.  So, no class Tuesday, June 14th (tomorrow … or today if you are reading this a few hours from now).

 

See you on the mat Wednesday or Thursday!

June Dojo Update

Congratulations to Caitlin on her 6th kyu test Tuesday 5/24/22. Thanks to all who came and supported her test. Caitlin is the latest in our cohort of recent beginners to don her first orange belt. It is wonderful to see our new students gel and become a group. This connection is what Aikido is all about. It is more than self defense, more than self discipline. By its very nature, Aikido builds community as it cannot be practiced in solitude. We require honest intentional interaction with others. We crave what we require. This is why Aikido builds and betters our lives.
 
Also, Starting June 2nd, 2022, we continue the post covid era reconstruction with adding another practce option on Thursday nights starting at 6pm-7pm in addition to our 7pm-8pm class.  Our full schedule now is:

Tuesdays 7-8pm with Brian Sensei
Tuesdays 8-9pm with Peter Sensei
 
Wednesdays 6-7:30pm with Ray Sensei
 
Thursdays 6-7pm with Marcella Sensei
Thursdays 7-8pm with Brian Sensei
