Greetings to all members and friends of Aikido Hokuryukai!

A few notes about the dojo…

The February class schedule is now online.

The Family Day long weekend is coming up Feb. 16-18. We normally cancel all classes on long weekends, but Family Day is an exception. Both kids’ classes and the Monday noon class are cancelled. The regular classes on Saturday, 10 to noon, and Sunday, 5 to 6 PM, will be held as usual.

Winter cancellations may affect our schedule. If the Ministry of Transportation advises against driving due to bad winter weather conditions, classes will be cancelled. Contact us or check the homepage for up-to-date information.

Our annual winter party was a great success, thanks to excellent food, great conversation and the hospitality of our generous hosts, Aubrie and Gail. The photos are online.

The Examination Committee seminar is coming up April 27-28 at the J.C.C.C. in Don Mills. The instructors will be members of the Canadian Aikido Federation Examination Committee and Ontario shidoin (senior instructors). Senior tests, from ikkyu up, will be held at this event. More information will be posted as soon as it is available.
