   Mid-Winter Update…

Just returned from Japan where I did a brief but very satisfying Gasshuku












It was great to see and train with people I haven’t seen in a while (and notice their progress in Aikido), as well as meet new people…


Back in time for the new floors at the Courtyard…very nice.




Our regular classes are now underway…

HappyHolidays…Come join us for aikido training

Today wrapped up our training for 2017, as two students tested for 6th Kyu (last night), and we circled back to kihon waza and explored shomen uchi ikkajo osae ichi...Also came across this picture (O' Sensei) to complement our recent aiki jo training sessions - seemed appropriate to share:


Shoryukan Dojo will be closed until January 18th, 2018, as the Courtyard (NS Ballet) prepares to repair their floating dance floors. This gives an opportunity to enjoy the holidays and return refreshed and ready to train! OSU!


Also beginning January 25th, a new semester of Iaido classes through the UAF Community and Technical College recreation program will begin:
