Keep up to date with all the news and updates at the dojo. Short and sweet, what is happening in the upcoming weeks and months
Junior Holiday Schedule
We will return to regular training from Monday 11th July.
Changes to Fees
You should have received an email from the dojo about the changes to fees that will come into effect in August. Please make sure you have signed the letter and handed it to someone at the front desk. If your printer is out of ink or an elephant sat on it or there is some other reason you can't print it we have spare copies at the front desk. If you have any questions about the changes please don't hesitate to get in contact.
Looking for a way to continue your training outside the dojo? Aiki Insights is a great podcast featuring instructors from the dojo sharing insights into Aikido and how to learn in the dojo environment. A great investment for any Aiki nerds, beginners looking for more info, or those looking to have Sensei Elio's voice lull them softly to sleep each night. More info available at the front desk.
Mustard Sensei Seminar
Coming in October, a not to be missed event, 29th/30th two full days of training with this legendary teacher. Start clearing your dairy now so you can make it.
Gaijin- A Play
Get some culture into ya. Gaijin will be showing from 6-16th July at Metanoia Theatre, Mechanics Institute, Brunswick. Written and directed by our very own Marty Rice and influenced by his time spent living in Japan and his training at the dojo I really can't think of any reason not to book a ticket today. There is also a special discount available to all dojo students, just put generaldisc in the coupon/ discount box when booking o
Self Defence Course & Schedule Change at Springvale
This special one off course is aimed to provide beginners a good foundation in self defence training, and to further the knowledge and skills of those with some experience already while improving fitness for everyone. Register on the website and if you know anyone who might be interested help us spread the word. No prior experience in martial arts necessary.
Due to this course the Springvale regular class will be from 7:00-7:45, followed by the self defence course from 7:45-8:30. All students are welcome to join the self defence course.
New Staff Member
You may have noticed a new face around the front desk at the dojo. Felicity MacDonald has joined the dojo as an admin assistant. She is at Heidelberg on Mondays and Thursdays, and Springvale on Saturdays so these are great days to come in if you need to sort out fees. If you see her around feel free to say hi and introduce yourself.
