Kokoro Aikido

Karl makes it look easy! Notice how there is no weight in the front leg and the hip rotates outward.

[03/28/17]   Kids/teens families: Reminder that tomorrow Tuesday 3/28, the dojo goes to one Tuesday class: 5-6pm, for yellow belts & up, and white belts by invitation. If you're not sure if your child is eligible, please contact SSAKidsTeens(at) gmail (dot)com. Thanks!

[03/24/17]   Kids/teens families - Tuesday class time update from Evan (please read his email for full scoop):
Tuesday at 6-7pm turned out to be too late for most of the advanced longterm students. Starting this Tuesday 3/28:

-White belts under 12 yo will have only one class per week: the Saturday 10:30-11:30am class. (Younger kids who've already been invited to attend the 11:30-12:30pm can keep attending it; it'll continue to be by-invitation for younger kids.)

-Yellow belts & up will retain the same classes they have now, except that their Tuesday class will return to the original 5:00-6:00pm time slot. That'll be the only kids/teens class on Tuesdays.

This means:
-We retain the current program structure, which opens up additional classes to kids as they advance.
-We create a kinder training schedule for younger/beginning kids, who as a group often find two hours/week to be too much, but need that solid hour once a week to advance.
-I can move kids along to higher ranks at a pace that will feel more satisfying to them.
