Seishinkan Dojo & Matthiew's farewell Dinner

On Wednesday, 15th Sept, our instructor announced that we shall have an Seishinkan Dojo dinner as one of the Seishinkan members(who actively help our Swinburne Aikido club) will be leaving for further studies in UK. Due to the announcement is quite sudden so we are truly sorry for those who can't make it. However, Swinburne Aikido Club shall have our own dinner very soon.

On Thursday, We met at Hornbill steamboat Eatery for a simple dinner. Here are some photos to share:

Brand New Semester

August intake is around the corner and that means there is a brand new semester awaits our Aikido club!
For this semester, we are still hoping to attract more members that are keen for the art or are interested to give this martial art a try.

The weekly meeting will start very soon. On the first study week, we shall have our first trial class. From, the trial class, interested individuals are able to get a big picture about Aikido and also to decide whether to give it a go. However, one is unable to judge Aikido from a 2 hours session because as the art itself can be a total different from one's concept of traditional martial art. Moreover, a lot of practices are needed in order to help a trainer to obtain a proper flow of the techniques and hence to execute the technique efficiently. In short, the knowledge of Aikido never stops, it require a person to learn, practice and improve at all time.

Anyway, the usual Swinburne Aikido weekly training are as follows:

Venue: Seishinkan Aikido Dojo
Day: Every Saturday (Starting from 28 August 2010)
Time: 1.00 p.m. till 3.00 p.m.

However, members are encourage to join another one hour session from the weekdays or Sunday classes of your choice without any additional charge. The purpose of this is to let the members to have more solid training and hence polish their techniques.

For those who might miss our trial class during the first week, do not worry! You are welcome to have a try out any time. Just contact us and drop by our dojo during practice time.
