To all of the members and people that participated and made Aiki Week a success this year! We had great attendance every night and I think everyone had a lot of fun. We even had some surprise visits from people that hadn’t trained in a while (you know who you are). We hope you keep coming back. We are a community and only through the efforts of the community can we have these types of events!
…and for the Aiki Maniacs, I’ll see you on the mat the next 2 nights!
Aiki Week is always free to our members but we are running a special:
• Been thinking about learning aikido? Now is the time! Come in, watch a class and if you join during Aiki Week, you get 1/2 off the usual sign up fee of $200. That’s $100 for a training uniform and your first 3 months of training!
• Members bring a friend to watch a class and if your friend signs up during Aiki Week (August 15th- 21st) they get 1/2 off the usual sign up fee of $200. That’s $100 for a training uniform and their first 3 months of training!
“But wait! There’s more!”
• The member that brings their friend also gets 1/2 off their September dues!
“There’s even MORE!”
• Friends from other dojos that come and train with us, bring a friend and your friend can train free! That’s right! Get 2 FOR 1 mat fees!
It’s Aiki Week!! SAA provides 7 days of training for our Aikido community as well as Aiki-maniacs of all levels from neighboring dojos. It gives an aikido summer camp type training without having to travel to another city. We will have two different focus areas of training each day of the week and a potluck on Saturday.
