Heard Around The Dojo

March Break Classes

All classes will be running as normal during the March Break


Seimeikan Dojo Reunion

Many of the former senior students of Seimeikan Dojo, which closed March 2003, got together at the Regal Palace Restaurant on Saturday March 5 for a reunion. The 13 course Chinese meal was only surpassed by the great conversation and memories shared. Since Karasawa Sensei's retirement from the martial arts, many of his former students have not seen each other. This was a very enjoyable evening and we hope to do more of this. Thanks to Peter and Tak for making all the arrangements. Pictures can be seen here.


February Kata Night

Thanks to all who made it out on February's Kata Night. We had a great evening of Kihon(basics), Kata, Bunkai(application of kata) and Yakusoku Kumite(Pre-arranged sparring). We also had a great time at Boston Pizza afterwards. Plan to join us next time (March 31st).


Winter Kyu Tests

Congratulations to everyone who passed their kyu examinations on Saturday February 5th. There were aikido tests at 9am, Karate tests at 10:45am and Jodo tests at 12:45pm. More pictures will be available soon. Some preliminary Jodo / Karate / Aikido pictures are available now.

Karate Kata Night

We would like to invite any karate-ka who practice Matsubyashi-Ryu to join us for the last Thursday of every month. After a good warm-up of kihon (basics) we start kata practice and sometimes also add Bunkai (application) and Yakusoku Kumite (pre-arranged sparring) practice to the evening. Our dojo is open to all, regardless of rank or associations. This is a non-political dojo and a fun night of training together in the true spirit of Nagamine Shoshin Sensei's Karate-Do. If you are interested in joining us please contact us for directions and times or feel free to drop in for the 8pm adult class on the last Thursday of each month. The next Kata night is Thursday March 31st


Aikido Hajime Class

On Wednesday March 30th we will be doing our "Hajime" training in the adult Aikido class. "Hajime" means to begin and we will be doing techniques rapidly on that command. It is an excellent cardio workout as well as an excellent training tool. When you must react quickly over and over to a command, you have no time to think about what you are going to do - you can only do. That is important in the martial arts. Be sure not to miss this class.


Jodo Seminar - Toronto

On Sunday March 20th There will be a Jodo seminar in Toronto, 1pm - 4pm. The location is the AYC Dojo at Yonge and Gerrard. This is an excellent way to improve your jodo - in a 3 hour intensive session


Easter Weekend

The Dojo will be closed on Friday March 25th and Saturday March 26 for the Easter Weekend. We will be open on Monday March 28th.
