OSU! and Hello Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the Chudokan Dojo will finally be opening again in August. This will be a slow opening as there are still some health restrictions that will prevent the full operation of regular Aikido classes. To that end, our first class of 2021 will be Yoga on Wednesday August 4th at 6:30pm. Iaido (Japanese sword study) will formally begin on Thursday August 5th at 8:30pm. We will have Yoga classes on Wednesday’s (6:30-7:30pm) and Saturday’s (10:30-11:30am) and have added an additional Yoga class on Monday’s (6:30-7:30pm) beginning on Monday August 9th. Yoga membership fees will be $50.00 monthly now, with 3 days of classes available per week. Iaido will continue with classes on Sunday’s (7-8pm), Monday’s (8-9pm) and Thursday’s (8:30-9:30pm). Fees will remain the same for Iaido memberships.

Aikido classes will begin on Tuesday, September 7th with Youth classes from 5:45-6:45pm and adult regular classes from 11am-12:15pm and also 7pm-8:15pm. This will be the same schedule for Thursday classes. At this time there will be no open training classes on Monday or Friday evenings. The Little Samurai program will begin on Saturday September 11th at its usual time (9-10am).

It has been a long time since we have been able to run classes and I am hoping to see many of our students return this fall. It will likely be a slow start to bring back old members and enroll new ones but I am optimistic we will build back strong with your help. See you on the mat. OSU!
