April is almost here and promises to be a busy month for the dojo.
- April 2nd - On the first Saturday of the month, April 2nd, there will be tests for both our junior and adult students. Much preparation goes into these tests and I hope to see many of you on the mat to support them. Testing starts at 9:00 am for juniors and 10:15 am for adults.
- Sunday, April 24th @ 11 am - O’Sensei’s memorial day is on April 26th. As this falls on a Tuesday this year, we will honor his memory by holding another 1,000 cut suburi practice on the preceding Sunday, April 24th, starting at 11 am. Those of you who have participated before know how intimidating 1,000 suburi sounds, but how exhilarating one feels to complete them. Start preparing now with a daily practice that builds up to the 1,000 cuts!
- Friday, April 29th through Sunday May 1st - Genjo Marinello Osho will be leading a sesshin at San Diego Aikikai. If you haven’t attended a sesshin before and are curious about sitting meditation please join us on Thursday evenings at 6:15 for zazen.
