To every thing there is a season...

... and a time to every purpose under the heaven.   Ecclesiastes 3:1

To all my clients and students,

Thank you so much for your support of Aikido Kids! a life skills school.   It is a privilidge and an honor to serve you and teach Aikido to your students.  

As of November 30, 2013, Aikido Kids! will no longer have a "dojo".    Our lease is ending, and for a variety of reasons, we have decided to "close" the school, and take Aikido Kids! in a new direction.
Our last day of classes will be Wednesday, November 26th, the day before Thanksgiving.    It is with a spirit of great Thanksgiving that we end this chapter of our business, and turn the page on a new one.

I ask that everyone celebrate their successes in our program, and joyfully look forward to working with a new teacher and learning more and more about Aikido.   Don't stop training - keep going!

It is my plan to develop aikidokids.net into an educational resource for young beginning aikido students of all affiliations, with exercises and solo practice exercises that you can use to help you understand the basic Aikido techniques more deeply.  I hope you will continue to visit this blog and our web site to see the changes that will evolve over time.  

If you have arrived her because you are looking for an aikido teacher, please see our "referrals" section for teachers in the Redmond/Kirkland/Bellevue area of Western Washington.    You may contact me by email, and I'm happy to discuss your needs and make a recommendation of a school that would be especially suited for your family.  

respectfully yours, Sensei Nancy

2011 Derby Days

Mom and I arrived early, and started blowing up balloons!
We found a great shady spot near the fire department.

Here are Grace, David, and Gina ready to walk in the kids parade with me.
The parade was fun, and so was the festival afterwards!  

Thanks for celebrating Redmond's Derby Days with me!
