Dojo News for August

August 1, 2013

August 10-11 North County Aikikai and San Diego Aikikai will be co-hosting a seminar with Jenny Flower Sensei from Athens Aikikai. Flower Sensei will be at San Diego Aikikai on the Saturday and at here at North County Aikikai on the Sunday. Click here for more information. I encourage all members to attend either all or part of this seminar. If you have any questions as to whether or not you are ready for a seminar, please speak to me directly.

Because of the seminar in San Diego, we will again be incorporating the two Saturday morning classes into one. All students who take the Fundamentals class at noon are encouraged to attend the 10:15 - 11:45 class instead.

Saturday, August 17 - ZANA's GOODBYE PARTY!!! As you you all know by now, Zana will be leaving to attend Mills College at the end of the month. She will be missed by us all but this new journey in her life is cause for celebration! Please join us - families too - for this pot-luck event. Details to follow.

Dojo News for July

July 1, 2013

July is rapidly upon us, actually it arrived today and I am late getting this out! Our annual Birankai Summer Camp begins this coming Friday, July 5th and many of our members will be attending. During this time the dojo clas schedule will be adjusted as follows:

  • Classes on July 4th are cancelled for the holiday.
  • The children's class had been cancelled for Saturday, July 6th.
  • The adult class from 10:15 to 11:45 on that Saturday will be open to ALL students. There will be no fundamentals class at noon and I am hoping that you will all be able to take the earlier session.
  • The mixed adult class on Monday the 8th will also be open to all students including those of you who are taking the beginning introductory course.

Mike Flynn Shihan will be conducting a seminar at San Diego Aikikai the weekend following the Summer Camp. Please see our website for details.

Jenny Flower Sensei will be conducting a seminar at San Diego Aikikai the weekend of August 10 to 11. Details to follow.

Enjoy the holiday!
