Dear Shin-Budo Kai Community,
We have made the difficult but necessary decision to suspend all classes from today, March 15th until March 31st due to the recent developments in the spread of COVID-19. There are no known cases in our community, but in order to maintain social distance and help lessen the rate of community spread, we are voluntarily cancelling all classes for the next two weeks. We will re-assess the situation in the coming weeks and notify you again if we must remain closed for a longer period of time.
For those of you who have paid dues for the month of March, we appreciate your continued support and hope you understand our decision in this difficult time. If, in the event that we must stay closed into April, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the dojo. We still need to pay our operating costs even while suspending classes. One-time and recurring donations can be made here on our website →
In the meantime, we hope you are all staying healthy. We plan to reach out soon with Sensei’s latest newsletter issue, which will be available to read on our website. You can catch up on older newsletters and messages from Sensei here → We also hope to devise some other methods of staying in engaged with Aikido outside of the dojo. Please stay tuned for more updates.

Wishing you the best of health,
