Online classes/tutorials in the time of COVID 19
Due to the Corona Virus pandemic, face-to-face classes at the dojo have been suspended. In the interim, online classes have been organised in the form of pre-recorded online video tutorials via YouTube and LIVE training sessions via Zoom. Contact the dojo if you are interested in enrolling in these.
NOTE: This mode of training is by no means the best way to learn a martial art, and once face-to-face classes recommence, these online video tutorials will only become useful as reference material to check your technique beyond your training at the dojo.
NEW IN 2020: MORNING CLASS
This year marks another first for our dojo. As training recommences for 2020 this January,
we will have our first morning class. Morning class will be on Tuesday mornings 6:00am-7:00am.
20/20 Challenge! Are you up for it?
SHINTŌ MUSŌ RYŪ TRAINING CAMP
A Shintō Muso Ryu summer training camp will again be held this January. It will be run on the weekend of Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 January. It will be an overnight stay event at Camp Warrawee with the focus of consolidating and/or initiating members to their next level of kata series in SMR Jo. Plus, the seminar will also include a focus on Kenjutsu. Two full days of concentrated training with experienced budōka will offer an excellent opportunity to rapidly progress your training. For expressions of interest, please talk directly with Sensei.
The AikiKids class for Term 1, 2020 is now full.
If you are interested in your child training in Term 2 of 2020, please enquire at the dojo to be placed on the waiting list in the case of cancellations.

STREET-STYLE SELF DEFENCE CLASSCANCELLED DUE TO COVID 19
Again in May we will hold a street-style self defence class. In this class students will apply Yoshinkan techniques in shortened and more destructive ways to demonstrate Aikido applications. This type of Aikido training can be more rigorous on the body and hence isn’t practiced every session in general classes.
The class is on the 9 May with a lunch afterwards. Please register at the desk with Sensei as numbers are restricted.
