It took awhile, but we’re finally launching SSA 3.0. Fortunately good things are happening in the dojo at a much faster pace than the webmaster works.
It’s been awhile since we all caught up so here’s a quick rundown of notable things that happened this past year:
Installed a new subfloor! Sure the place looked pretty much like it did before we started, but there’s a big difference taking falls on the new floating floor. Training is safer and healthier for all participants.
Shortened the mat frame and installed hardwood flooring in the front of the dojo. Looks nicer and easier to clean!
Put in a big, noisy fan that pulls lots of air into the dojo. Getting some fresh air into the space is always helpful and makes for much more comfortable training on the warm days.
Kids summer camp at the ocean. Quite an experience for kids, teachers and parents. There are stories. And pictures. Remember that kids…
Kenta Shimizu, Tendo Ryu dojo cho traveled from Japan to teach a seminar at SSA. It was a unique experience to train with a teacher of exceptional caliber.
Budo Tanren debuted. In this class we teach how to develop a martial body that cultivates stability, power and efficient movement. These are the basis for developing aiki skills.
And there are more exciting things to come!
Good things happen at SSA because of the leadership of our board and the significant volunteer efforts of our teachers, students and their family members. Every effort to help is very much appreciated.
enjoy your weekend!

Come join us for a 2 month introduction to aikido. Classes are Monday and Wednesday nights, 630-745pm.
No experience needed, come wearing comfortable exercise clothes (long pants recommended) and experience aikido first hand.
Improve your balance, decrease your tension in response to stress, begin to understand the nature of conflict, and see how by changing ourselves, we can perhaps change our partner.
Cost is $100 for the 2 month series, come a little early on the first day (Mon Feb 2) to enroll.
Hope to see you on the mat!
