Public Documents Folder

I have created a public documents folder for shared dojo items such as general information, forms, and testing requirements:
Kinjo Dojo Public Documents Folder

Currently I only have testing requirements in there, but I'll keep adding more as we continue to get organized.

The dan and kyu documents from the Aikido of San Leandro website are copied in there, and I have broken out the 2nd Kyu and Shodan tests since most people at the dojo so far will be taking one or the other of those.

Mats are In

We picked up the mats last night, cleaned, and put them down in the dojo. Afterwards we had time for a short practice to break them in.

There is still some extra room on either side so we might add another row, or a half row, but we're off to a good start. 

Come on by and try them out!

New Mats

Mats purchased!

We got a smokin' deal on some used mats. As soon as the current owners receive their new set (sometime this week), we'll be able to pick up their old ones (our new ones) and take them to the dojo. I'm hoping we will be rolling around on the new mats by next Tuesday.

We have 40 square meters of usable space at the dojo. Did I mention that I bought 120 or so 1x1 meter mats? That gives us plenty of space for future expansion and seminars.

Come on by class next week and try them out!
