Summer Break

Our Summer break will start a bit early this year as we have recently found out that we have to move from our current Global Gym location before September. Dojo disassembly will take place on August 2 and 3. Classes should resume in September but stay tuned for information on where that will be…

UPDATE: Our new dojo is at 21 Mews Place. Classes will resume following the regular schedule on September 10th.

Congratulations to Antonina, Ivan and Craig!

Five of our club members (Ivan, Jolanta, John, Esteban and Antonina) attended the 2013 CAF Summer Camp (Halifax, June 16-21) with Osawa Shihan. While there, Antonina graded Shodan and Ivan graded Yondan. Also, Craig Rogers (who started Aikido at our dojo but has now been at the Halifax Aikikai for many years) graded Nidan. Congratulations to everyone! Below is an action shot of Osawa Shihan teaching.
