The adult classes at the South Chandler dojo are not effected by the Thursday holidays in November so they will have classes as scheduled for November (no class on 11/25) and their last class for December will be Mon., Dec. 20.
Looking ahead on the calendar there are two Thursdays that are holidays in November (Veterans’ Day 11/11 and Thanksgiving 11/25), therefore we are combining the two open Thursdays in November with the first two Thursdays of December to make one month. So the last class for 2010 kids’ classes at the South Chandler dojo will be Thursday, Dec. 9.

On Saturday, March 20 Snedigar Recreation Center (location of South Chandler dojo) will be hosting an Open House that will hightlight classes taught there. Both the kids and adult classes will be having demonstrations so that the community can learn more about what is offered at the center.
The Open House begins at 10:00 am and will end at 12:00 pm. The Aikido demonstration will be from 10:00-10:30 with the adult class continuing with regular class until 11:30, which will act as another demonstration in and of itself. We will have students demonstrating a wide range of techniques to help showcase what Aikido is about and hopefully encourage people to come to a class and give it a try.
Snedigar students who are participating, please come dressed in your gi and ready to go by 9:55 am. This will be a great way to get in some extra practice. Once our demonstration is over and while you are there, check out the other classes that will be participating as well. There will be informational flyers, make-and-take activities and drawings for free stuff.
Thank you in advance for everyone who will be participating. It is very much appreciated. Let’s show everyone what a great art Aikido is!
