Dojo Events, Workshops, and Other Announcements!

Start your training at Aikido Shusekai anytime in January, and train free for the rest of the month.

Sunday, January 28th: DOJO MEETING & POTLUCK. Come at 12:30pm to join us for our regular Sunday afternoon basics class – and bring food and drink for afterward. At 2:30pm, instead of our usual Sunday advanced class, we’ll be having a brief dojo meeting followed by a potluck meal and a chance to hang out and talk without throwing each other. The whole dojo community is invited! Details here.

Monday, February 19th: We are OPEN on President’s Day (and every other holiday except for Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day). Arrive at 7:30pm for our regularly scheduled Monday night beginner class.

Tuesday, April 3rd and Thursday, April 5th: During the Berkeley Unified School District’s Spring Break, new students can try out our Aiki Kids program for free! Open to kids ages 7 & up, parents welcome. Contact Azzia Sensei for more information.

Thursday, April 19th: Aiki Kids Open House Class! Parents and siblings age 6 and up are invited to join us for practice in today’s Aiki Kids class. Wear long comfortable pants and bring a water bottle. Arrival time 4pm, and we finish at 5:30.

Sunday, November 4th: Longtime dojo member Monika Tippie tests for nidan (2nd degree black belt). If you’re a dojo member, come join us on the mat for training and then for the test. And if you’re a member of the broader dojo community, come watch the test! Show up at 12:30pm if you’ll be on the mat, or at 2:30pm if you’re watching. We’ll finish up at 4pm and then go out and celebrate.
