Very Sorry!

No classes for now until the emergency is lifted.

While we are unable to have classes at the dojo, we will provide some videos here to help students to review..

Try to stay positive.
Be brave, kind, and strong,
for all cruelty springs from weakness.
Respect physical distancing, but stay in touch!
Trust that it will all work out in the end.
Let the difficult situation bring out the best in you.

Stay calm and relax!
We will be back!

And please attend to the following..

Wash your hands.
Practice distancing.
Do not bring harm to others, we are all in this together!!
At present, exercise caution and patience.
Practice compassion, responsibility and consideration
To your self and those around us.
Stay healthy; go for a walk but practice physical distancing, wash your hands.
Do your warmup exercises as we did in our normal classes.
Watch your diet; I do eat a little less at meal time as I am less active.
Embrace spiritually, a great time for self-reflection, and
Practice visualization of the aikido techniques or tai chi if space is restricted
Stay calm, relax, and stay home.
"Nothing is permanent in this world
Even our troubles"

Warmest Regards,
