Please extend a warm welcome Ian and Nirav, our newest students in our kids' class.
Well, it's that time of year again. The air is getting warmer, the birds have started singing, and my camping gear is good to go. Yes, it's time for our 2012 camping trip.
For those keeping count, 32 intrepid explorers have committed to camping overnight this year, while 17 less intrepid (but still adventurous) explorers are joining us for the campfire, evening class, and all around good times.
We'll be camping in beautiful Anastasia State Park in Saint Augustine. Stay tuned for food and campsite assignments in the coming days. I can't wait!
On Saturday, March 17 a benefit seminar for Grady Lane Sensei will be held at Brevard Aikikai in Melbourne, Florida. Lane Sensei is a good friend and senior Aikido instructor. Grady recently underwent major surgery, and the seminar is meant to show our support for him during this difficult time.
We are organizing a carpool for the trip down, so if you are interested, please see Dee or Jerry. (And also check out the new designs on Brevard Aikikai's online store. Pretty spiffy!)
We've scheduled parent's class for Saturday, March 31. What is parent's class, you ask? Well, it's a chance for our parents, with the help of their children, to experience Aikido first hand. For our kids, it's a chance to show Mom and Dad how much they've learned. And for our parents, it's a painless way to experience the art first hand.
