Wednesday Night Classes!

After consulting with more members of the dojo, it's come to the conclusion that is is better to hold off on starting Wednesday night classes to coincide with the start of the next beginners series. Sorry for the short notice. I hope everyone understands the decision and we hope to have members of Aikido, Icho ryu, and new students taking part.  So, speaking for all of us in Icho Ryu, we hope to see old and new faces on the mat

Belt Promotions Testing This Friday, January 21, 6:15pm class starts (to warm up), 6:45pm testing begins. Potluck afterwards!

Thursday Night Class

I just want to make sure that folks realize that there is a Thursday night aikido class to attend.  Chris Moses and I share the teaching and we are happy to adjust for whomever shows up.  Thursday night class is open to all students at SSA.




January Beginners Series is here to welcome in the New Year!

Happy 2011!

Beginners' classes are Mondays, 6pm-715pm, and Fridays 615pm-730pm.

It's not too late to sign up...the course is 2 months, and runs through the end of February, 2 classes each week focusing on basic principles and movement, with some simple techniques.  Even though the classes build on each other slightly, please join anytime and we can get you up to speed in no time!

See you on the mat!
