Re-Opening Wed May 27th

We are re-opening class Wed. May 27th.

Hours at our venue Premier Shooting & Training has changed, so we are shifting too.
Classes will still be Mon and Wed, but mat time will now be 6:30PM - 7:30PM.
The site will close at 7PM, so doors will be locked then.

Feel welcome to arrive and leave in your gi's (i.e., if you want to avoid the locker rooms, which have always been clean but many people are trying to minimize contact now with any surface).

We will be practicing Aikido while "distancing", which means we will be ~6feet apart practicing weapons and kata for a while. We'll have extra weapons for members who lack them.

Masks are optional.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to training again while being safe.

Holding Pattern Continues - Expect slight hour change

April 29th update. 

Governor DeWine's most recent update has the phase-1 re-opening beginning early May, so there is hope we will see each other soon. We fall under the category of "gyms" and will part of the phase-2 reopening (timing TBD). Premier Shooting and Training is planning on shifting their hours again (a trend starting before the COV-19 crisis, made more complicated now); this instance, the venue hours will affect us.

This is not 100% confirmed yet, but we expect that our mat time will be shifted to a 6:30PM-7:30PM slot (still on Mon and Wed); note, this is still the latest time-slot available. We hope that will not interfere with work schedules.

As mentioned before, when we do reconvene we'll keep our ~6foot distance and practice weapons initially.

We'll be in touch with updates. Stay safe,

Classes cancelled until further notice

As of 3PM March 16th, Ohio Governor DeWine ordered all fitness & athletic centers closed because of the COVID-19 response.
So contrary to our recently posted strategy, we are canceling classes from today... until we are allowed to reopen. Obviously, we do not know that date yet. Current estimates vary widely.
When we do open again, we will likely focus on non-contact practice (ie weapons) for a while.
We appreciate your patience. Stay safe and stay tuned.
Regards, Dojocho Sensei Domascho & Sensei Lindberg

COVID-19 Class Announcement

In response to the COVID-19 situation, we plan on only working on the weapons curriculum for the next 2 weeks. This will eliminate skin-to-skin and close-contact.

We will be focusing on the kata, kumijo, kumitachi and possibly Iaido if there is interest. There is plenty of curriculum and detail to work on with the weapons. We will bring extra weapons for any who need them. After 2 weeks (~end of March) we will reassess and go from there.

We will also be complying with the cleaning and sanitization going on at Premier Shooting & Training. 
The facility plans to remain open and we plan to train as safely as possible as long as we can.

We also recommend washing your gis after every class and wiping down your weapons. 
Of course, if you feel unwell take the time to get better.

We think these steps will address the current situation. If you have concerns or recommendations please let us know. Martial arts training is a deeply personal choice and challenging in the best of times, as it is sup…
