Once again, we will be saying good bye to the past year and welcoming the new one in the best way ever: ON THE MATS.

Come join us in this traditional year end practice followed by light snacks and a toast.

Friends from out of town are welcome to bring their sleeping gear and spend the night at the dojo.

*Every year, the Aikikai World Headquarters hosts a very special tradition called "Etsunen Geiko" (year-end practice). Aikido practitioners gather from far and wide to train together during the last half hour of the year and first half hour of the next. After class they celebrate the start of the year with light snacks and Japanese sake. 

Movie Night #16

MOVIE NIGHT #16

MOVIE OF THE MONTH: A Nightmare Before Christmas


Date: November 30 (Fri)

Time: 6:00-9:00 pm

*We will be combining the 2 older kids classes and having them all at 5pm.

 

One Friday Night each month we host Movie Night at the dojo. Parents get a little break and the kids get to have a lot of fun. All of the Aikido kids gather together play games, eat a meal and watch a movie. This is a great opportunity for them to get to know one another a little better and bond. 

We will be cooking up some sort of super yummy vegan dish, making fresh lemonade and of course pop corn.

Food and games are from 6 to 7. The movie starts at 7. Pick up is from 8:30. Lights go out at 9.

Kids call it movie night, but most parents call it "Date Night". Some even just call it "Start the Carrrrrrr!"

Our adult members are also invited to come out socialize and have fun with the kids. This is a great time to hang out, have fun and create community. 

Adults are requested to bring a dish to share. Please let us know of any food allergies or dietary restrictions that we should know about. 

Movie night or "Date Night" is by donation.
