Pro-D Aikido Workshops continue in this term, as a supplement to your regular Aikido classes. These half-day workshops are held at the Gordon Head Middle School
If you wish to sign up for the workshops, do register at the Gordon Head Recreation Centre reception counter, or online at http://recreation.saanich.ca/reconline/Start/
If you have read the scheduled class dates in the Saanich Active Guide, you would have noticed that the cycle just before our regular annual break at the end of June has only 5 or 6 classes.
Please note that this is because there are no classes scheduled during the week of 19 May until 23 May.
I will be visiting Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Japan with my Sensei, from Saturday 17 May, returning on Sunday 25 May.
Notice, also, that there will NOT be our regular Ukemi Workshop during the Spring Break this year as it is Holy Week; with Good Friday and Easter following that weekend.
A series of shirts, jackets and hoodies (for the younger students) are now available.
These are in black with the (kanji) characters "Aikido" embroidered in gold on the left or right chest, and the words "Ueshiba Aikido, Victoria BC" embroidered on the sleeve.
The golf/polo shirt is $30, the hoodie is $28, and the jacket is $70.
If you are interested to order, please see Mrs Oei or send me an email.

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.
students are reminded to register for each new cycle two weeks before

This year, there will be three Grading Tests;
Students are required to practice at least 20hours for 12kyu to 9kyu, 30hours for 8kyu to 6kyu, 40hours for 5kyu, 50hours for 4kyu and 3kyu, 60hours for 2kyu and 70hours for 1kyu.
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.
