On February 3rd, Andy Dale awarded Mike Ullmann and Burk Dowell the rank of yondan (4th degree blackbelt) in the art of Xin Qi Shen Dojo Aikijujitsu. “Their skill and dedication to the martial arts is extremely high and sincere.” Since Mike gets up early every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to teach our SSA morning class, we’d certainly have to agree!
Way to go Mike, well deserved!
Sorry for the late notice, but there will be no adult aikido class on Monday night, 630pm, due to the Presidents’ Day Holiday.
The beginners series will resume on wednesday 630pm.
For those that have been asking, the next beginners’ series is planned for April and May, stay tuned for exact dates.
The next belt grading exam date will probably be in early June, pending the readiness of test candidates.
See you all Wednesday night, and sorry for any inconvenience,
– John Peng
