Aikido of the San Juans instructors participate in Junior High School program in Inada, Japan.
Under Colorado's Safer at Home Order, we are permitted to train in groups of four plus sensei.
With ongoing medical research into the length of time water droplets potentially containing the COVID-19 virus remain in the air, particularly during vigorous physical activity, we are not resuming in-person training indoors at this time.
We ARE training in person, outdoors.
Pre-registration is required, and you must adhere to our protocols for safe practice. Please contact Sensei for details on how to join.
Thank you for your understanding and Gambatte!
Aikido practice is the path that unites body and spirit. It will enable us to develop a mind that sees things exactly as they are.
