Thank you and Congratulations!

Thank you to Tres Hofmeister Sensei for a fantastic seminar.  We appreciate all those who visited our dojo to attend.  We also want to thank all those members of the dojo who worked hard to make the seminar a success.

Congratulations to Phil and Damian for great Shodan tests!  Video of their tests has been uploaded at:

We look forward to our upcoming seminar with Ikeda Shihan March 24-26, 2017.

Dojo Cleaning

In preparation for the seminar next weekend with Tres Hofmeister Sensei, we will be having a dojo cleaning on Saturday, 10/8/16, starting at 2:00 pm.  The more people who come, the faster it will go.  Also, if we can try to do a little cleaning during the week, that will help as well.  See you there.

Sunday Class Cancellations for Titans Games. Remember, Whited Sensei Seminar in Louisville on Sat and Sun, Sept 24 & 25

As you know, travel to East Nashville can be difficult when the Titans are playing at Nissan Stadium.  Sunday class will be cancelled on weeks that they play at home on Sundays. Sunday class is cancelled:

Sunday, Sept 25 – Please consider attending Whited Sensei’s seminar in Louisville

Sunday, Oct 16 – This is the weekend of Tres Hofmeister Sensei’s seminar at Nashville Aikikai.  I would recommend getting to the dojo early on Sunday to avoid the crowd going to the game, which starts at noon.  If we leave the dojo around 1 pm or so, we should miss the traffic leaving the game.

Sunday, Oct 23

Sunday, November 13

Sunday, December 11

Sunday, January 1

There are also home games scheduled on Thursday, Oct 27 at 7:25 PM and on Saturday, December 24 at noon – suspect the later class would have been canceled in any case for the holiday.

I look forward to seeing you in the dojo.
