Good evening Shoshinkan family!
Last Saturday was the annual Kagami Biraki Joint Seminar with the Shobukan group at the Eagle Dojo and I speak for everyone when I say it was a fantastic event full of energy, enthusiasm, and positivity! The dojo was electric for the 2 hours with over 50 people getting involved! Don’t miss out on our next collaboration with Aikido Shobukan as we plan some more for the rest of the year!t
The Annual Beginners Course is now only 2 weeks away! It is really important to us that we continue to expand our Aikido family, however this is impossible without your help! It is in all of our best interested that we have an ever-growing group and the best way for newbies to join is via the Beginners Course – this was how I started myself! We urge you all to share the news using social media and word of mouth to raise awareness for the start of the course and encouraging people to get involved and join the family. We also have posters made by our own very talented Lucy Kong that you can put up in your work place! Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated!
Lets get recruiting for our family!!!
NEW BEGINNERS COURSES!
If you, or a friend, are bored of the gym, looking to get fitter, striving to become an internationally known martial artist, or just looking for a new hobby, these are the dates you need to remember! The following courses will be starting on the following dates:
This is a course perfectly designed for a beginner to transit in to a fully paced regular class. With the focus being on the absolute fundamentals, anyone can benefit from these classes, even a seasoned black belt! This year will include an element of self-defence too! All courses will cost a fee of £60 for the 5 weeks.
Please spread the word and help our Aikido Family grow!
ANNUAL INSURANCE DUE
Unfortunately it is that time if year again when annual insurance fees are due in. These are important and unavoidable fees on top of the membership fee and are independent from any control or influence from us. The fees are:
This will cover you for the full years training at our Dojo for any injuries or problems that may arise. We also ask for these fees to be paid in full before the 31st of January 2019 please.
An insurance form will also need to be completed with the payment. You can find these attached or get them from Sensei Tad or Sensei Rowan. Note that there is a different form for adults and juniors.
