Hombu Dojo Fund

This fund will help to subsidise the cost of trips to the World Aikido Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan,
and to dojos or Aikido functions beyond Victoria.

One fund raising activity is through Bottle Depot.
An account has been set up with Bottle Depot, so if you would like to contribute to the fund,
please tell staff at Bottle Depot that your returns are for 'Ueshiba Aikido' or account 388.

Thank you for all your support and contributions.
We will aim for our next visit to Hombu Dojo to be in 2020, if not before.

The recreation centre requires that all students be accounted for from the first lesson of each cycle.

As our Aikido programme is on-going, members of our dojo are encouraged to pre-registered for each new cycle.

Currently, students are reminded to register for each new cycle two weeks before the end of each cycle.
Typically, a cycle lasts two months, with Grading Tests four times a year.

Post-dated cheques may be submitted to me or Mrs. Oei (Kathy).
The cheques are to be made payable to "Corporation of the District of Saanich".

Register at the Gordon Head Recreation Centre reception counter.

Practice hours, ideally, should be continuous uninterrupted practice. Hours are not cumulative over weeks or months of inactivity. This is necessary, as with all skills, to enable the student to refine and develop fluency in his/her knowledge, balance and technique in the art. If a student is absent for six months or more, the student will revert back to the level of white belt until the student demonstrates the ability to perform at his/her previous level.

Only students who are ready and eligible for grading will be invited to apply to be graded.

No video recording or photography will be allowed during Grading Tests.
