Are you interested in trying Aikido?

We are offering a 6 week introductory course in Aikido starting on Wednesday, October 2.

No experience with Aikido? Not a problem. Here is your chance to try it now.

This course will introduce you to basic Aikido movements and principles, including how to fall and roll safely, moving your body in a coordinated manner, staying off the line of attack, and breaking someones balance while maintaining your own. This course will prepare you for the next level of your Aikido journey.

What is Aikido?

Aikido is a traditional none-competitive Japanese martial art that focuses on blending and re-directing your partner's energy to create a positive outcome. Individuals work a their own pace in a cooperative and harmonious environment.

Movie Night #17

MOVIE NIGHT #17

MOVIE OF THE MONTH: The Muppets Movie


Date: January 25 (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.
