SCHEDULE (ONLINE AND IN-PERSON)

Updated Monday, Jan 25, 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 are improving the process for signing up for in-person classes at the dojo. While we expect a slow return to more normal practice sometime this year, we will still need to track attendance, provide some health questions, and log who is attending classes.

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 contact@aikidoframingham.com and we will send you an invitation to the dojo Teamsnap group.


Announcements from David Sensei:

  • Our in-person weapons classes now include partner practice.  So if you were hoping to do a bit more than kata practice, you should consider trying a  weapons class.
  • Please be extra vigilant about your health in this period following the holidays.  Our Health Committee is continuing to monitor the environment and our health protocols.


Other notes:

  • 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.


We look forward to seeing you this week!
