Happy Holidays

The Aikido Institute would like to offer everyone a very Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.

We look forward to another great year of practice in 2018, have a safe and Happy Holiday with your Family and Friends. We will be eager to practicing once again in 2018.

A Great Night of Practice

I would like to give a big thank you to Sensei Terry for a great night of practice for our first night back on the mats at our new location:
The gymnasium looks great with a fresh coat of paint, that really brightens up the atmosphere.

We look forward to seeing everybody on the mats.

New Practice Location

Effective immediately the Aikido Institute of Newfoundland no longer operates out of District School on St. Clare Avenue – returning to ÉCOLE INTERMÉDIAIRE ET SECONDAIRE FRANCOPHONE DE SAINT-JEAN (a.k.a. the old Holy Cross Junior High) as of Tuesday, 3 October, 2017, @ the regular time of 7:30 (7:00 for mat setup).

Aikido resumes for a new semester

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 away 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!
