Updated: for April and May 2021

Given the COVID19 situation we are continuing our Aikido training with a combination of virtual classes and in-person classes (masked, 10 foot distance, solo practice). Our Health Committee is doing a great job continually reviewing health protocols to make practice as safe as possible.

We will soon be starting a small class at the old dojo open only to people who have been vaccinated, starting with "nage holds the jo" which allows taking ukemi while maintaining  some distance. If you are interested in attending this class, and have been vaccinated, please send a note to  We'll announce details and those who have expressed interest will be notified individually.  If this class is successful, we'll expand the program.

We have transitioned to using the Teamsnap app. Signing up for class with this smartphone app is quick and easy. You can see information about upcoming classes. It lets us support sign-ups much closer to class time.

Once you download the app you can send an email to and we will send you an invitation to the dojo Teamsnap group.

Remember: dojo policy is no one should be prevented from practicing because of financial constraints.

Additional online classes at other Shin Kaze Aikido Alliance dojos are available to SKAA members.  Schedule of those events here (password protected). 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  For classes in Framingham or Providence, please sign-up via Teamsnap (see above) at least  two hours before class.
