COVID-19 Schedule

Dear ASD members,

We hope everyone is coming through this unprecedented year and half safe and healthy. 

We are very happy to announce that we have resumed training together on the mat! We have opened up the Dojo for a limited schedule of in person classes and will continue our outdoor and some virtual zoom classes for the foreseeable future.

Indoor classes require proof of full vaccination, wearing a mask, and pre sign up via a signup genius link provided to members via a private email. The indoor classes will mainly consist of empty hand traditional aikido training.
