This weekend is the Daylight Saving Time change… Remember to set your clocks back by an hour Saturday night at bedtime to be on time for Sunday class!

Congratulations to our most recent successful test candidates, Tibor and Michael L., both passing their nikyu tests. Their hard work paid off!

Yumi and I are just back from Osawa-shihan’s fall seminar in Victoria. It was an extraordinary training opportunity, and it was great to get together again with some old Aikido friends. A week-long seminar with Osawa-shihan is scheduled for Calgary this summer. We strongly encourage everyone to attend, and we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Victoria seminar: Ishu Ishiyama, Alex Loo, Wil Wong, Osawa-shihan, Yumi, Jim, Pat Olson.

The Canadian Aikido Federation Examination Committee Seminar is slated for Nov. 18-19 at JCCC Aikikai in Toronto. It’ll be a great opportunity to learn and train, and senior tests are scheduled for Saturday. All classes at our dojo, including kids’ classes, are cancelled that weekend. Kids 12 and under can attend the seminar at no charge on Sat., 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and/or Sun. from 12 to 1 p.m. Please let us know if you intend for your kid to attend. Click here for more information.

The November schedule is now online.

A very small number of students still have not paid their annual Canadian Aikido Federation dues. This mandatory payment of $20 is now overdue… please take care of it at your first opportunity.

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
