Good day everyone,
It’s going to be a hot labor day weekend here in San Diego! We are looking forward to aikido training in our air-conditioned dojo and hopefully we can break a sweat and enjoy a few extra ukemi.
As for Saturday, all classes will start at the same time. Since the onset of Kenshu training for brown belts took place, we have been ending the adult class early to accommodate. For Monday, the kids class is canceled and the youth will join the adult class for some advanced training. Here is the schedule below:
Our next belt test is scheduled on Saturday, September 28th. Test preparation will begin soon. Please let us know if you or your child(ren) will be able to test on that date or the following Monday. We are also planning to have a potluck celebration after the adult class test that day so please let us know if you are planning to join. We need a headcount before setting the place.
As for aikido in hot weather, we would like to share with you the training in Japan. Here is a blog by the full-time Kenshusei students from Kyoto. It was a wonderful way to get to know training and living in Japan as we watch the progress of our friends overseas.
Happy training everyone!
