Hi Everyone,
As the best-weather summer in many years comes to a close, we look forward to starting another year of practice. It is a great opportunity for both regular practitioners and those who have been way awhile to return to share the hard work and camaraderie that defines the Aikido Institute. 
There is a little movement in our future.  After spending the last year at District School on St. Clare Avenue, in mid-September we will return to our old home on Rickett's Road at the as-yet-unnamed French School occupying the old Holy Cross Junior High. A future message will confirm the moving date and class times.  Until then, all are of course welcome to join us Tue-Thu-Sat at District School on St. Clare Avenue.
Hope to see you on the mats!
