To All Dojo Members:
Please come out Friday, January 10, 2014 for our Kagami Biraki celebration. Tom and Mary Sensei will teach class starting at 6:30, followed by dinner in the dojo. Shh! It is a surprise. Don’t tell Sensei.
If you were unable to come to the first Introductory Class of the New Year on January 6 due to inclement weather or other concerns, please come out to any of our upcoming Monday or Wednesday night Introductory Classes from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. We look forward to seeing you in the dojo.

A big thank you to all of the Nashville Aikikai members who contributed to the Shade Tree Clinic. We raised $498.00 to help the uninsured in Nashville get medical care. We will be organizing some group volunteer activities later in the year. Please watch this space.
Mike P. and Marta had a great week at the ASU Winter Intensive in St. Pete Beach, Florida between Christmas and New Years, training with Saotome Shihan and other senior instructors. It was a particularly rare treat to train with Patty Saotome. We look forward to future seminars. I know many of us are planning to go to Louisville in February to train with Ikeda Shihan.
