New Dojo!

On November 22, MUN Aikido and MUN Judo moved from West Hatcher to our new dojo on Elizabeth Avenue. All classes are now held there. Here are some pictures of the move.

Y. Nakamura Seminar

Yumi Nakamura Sensei of Aikido Tendokai in Toronto will visit us again this weekend. Click here for the poster. To help make space for the seminar, Thursday and Sunday night classes will be cancelled this week.

H. Osawa Seminar in Toronto

Ivan Booth attended the September 24-25 seminar with H. Osawa Sensei at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in Toronto (and was lucky enough to take one round of ukemi for Sensei). Thanks to David Newman (www.davidnewmanphoto.com) for the photos.


Congratulations John!

From August 7-11 several members of MUN Aikido attended the Atlantic Canada Aikido Summer Camp in Halifax. John Bell successfully tested for Shodan. Congratulations John!

Summer Break

The last class for the summer will be Thursday, August 4th. Practice will resume on Thursday, September 8th at 8:00pm.

Summer Schedule

Classes will resume at the University on April 26. For the summer we will be practicing out of Hatcher House on Tuesdays (7:00-9:00pm) and Thursdays (8:00-9:30pm). We will also have a Jo practice at the same location on Wednesdays (1:00-2:00pm). Sunday classes (7:00-8:30pm) will be at the PowerPlex / Provincial Training Centre for May and June (and then we will take Sundays off until September). Maps and links can be found on Practical Info.

MUN Combat Room Closes

After 33 years in the same location, MUN Aikido will be moving after March 25. The MUN Combat Room is closing forever (and will become a lecture theatre). See the post above for our new practice schedule and location. Below is the group photo from our Wake for the Combat Room.
Thanks to everyone who came from Fudoshin Aikikai and the Aikido Institute of Newfoundland.
