Kangeiko inbetween January and February!

Hello dojo members,

January is almost over – but only almost because the best is yet to come 😊

πŸ₯ΆπŸ₯±πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’« KANGEIKO !

It starts on Monday, January the 30th – just before 6 a.m. meeting point in the dojo, then either Za Zen or a jog.
From 6:30 a.m. Aikido
From 7:30 a.m. Japanese breakfast
We look forward to all early risers!

From February the Akazienzendo will move to us, which we are very much looking forward to.
Two evenings a week (Tuesday and Thursday) there is ZaZen and once a month on Sundays there is an all-day event.

We wish the group a good transition from one place to another, we hope to get to know each other carefully with openness and respect – synergy effects cannot be ruled out. Let’s give them some space and time to settle down, then we’ll see.

Warm greetings
And, as I said, the KANGEIKO is just around the corner!

Max and Ulli

New basic class on Friday

Dear dojo members,

the summer is coming to an End, many have trained regularly even in the great heat, and have sweated profusely.

We are very happy that we have already gained some new dojo members and hope that the trend will continue for a while. We are a lively and dynamic dojo. And this is also because of the newcomers, whether they are beginners or aikidoka with a lot of experience. They all contribute to the atmosphere in our dojo and are always welcome.

We have expanded our offer for beginners:

Anyone interested in weapons training is welcome to attend the class on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.
Additional a new basic class takes place on Fridays at 7:30 p.m.
It is usually led by our advanced students who look forward to gaining teaching experience and supporting you with your first steps.

See you at the dojo 😊
Ulli and Max

Aikido class on Whit Monday the 6th of June

The long May course was a nice event and at the end, there were beautiful exams for the third and second Kyu on Sunday. So we will have two more Hakamas in the Dojo now. πŸ˜‰

June begins a bit cool and stormy, but hopefully, there will be enough sunshine for the long weekend.

On Whit Monday we have one Aikido class for all levels at 6 pm.

From Tuesday it will continue as usual.

Warm greetings

Time to celebrate again.

Dear dojo members and friends,

I am very happy that there is a reason for a drink in the dojo again. 🍻πŸ₯‚

I was appointed Shihan of the Aikikai (along with Lothar and Ulf). This is a great achievement for me personally, for our Dojo, and for the Aikido Federation Germany. And it is also a confirmation of decades of dedicated work for Aikido. πŸ€ͺ

Max and I would like to celebrate with you a little bit on Friday, April 29th after the evening practice.
If you can’t make it to the class, you’re more than welcome to just come and toast with us.

Between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., there is champagne, beer, wine, water, and appetizers.πŸ₯‚πŸ»πŸ₯¨πŸ§€πŸ£πŸ•πŸ₯’πŸ«’πŸŒΆπŸ¦΄

Until then!
Ulli and Max
