Details of the Pietro seminar

The details of the seminar with Giampietro Savegnago sensei just arrived along with the dates of the kyu preparations.

The rules for the kyu preparations are similar to how it happened last time: you have to participate in at least two sessions plus the trainings on the date of the kyu test. Of course, the participation in the preparation sessions is recommended for those as well who don't plan to take the test in December.

The events are in the calendar.

New events in calendar, moving

There are new events in the dojo calendar. The details will be there later.

About the moving: as it looks at the moment we will move. I would feel regret if I didn't take an opportunity like this. We still need to talk about the Tuesday morning classes as I will only hold them if there are more than only 2-3 people showing up. Otherwise I will suggest participating in the other aikido classes either on other day or before us. Or you can also stay longer after our class to practice a little more on your own. I will try to arrange that our classes can be on Mondays and Thursdays, so theoretically you can choose between two different instructors who holds trainings before me.

The events are in the calendar.

No weapons training tonight

Due to the current situation during nights in the city, I ask you not to carry your weapons on the streets. Please don't bring them to the dojo today.

The tolerance level of the police is getting to zero nowadays, so even if you could explain that you're only going for training or back home, they might not let you finish your explanation.

If you already have your stuff with you when you read this post, please try to leave them in your workplace, school, or car. If you bring it to the dojo, you can leave it there until next Thursday.

English version launched

Mainly because I realized that there are more and more people seeking aikido training possibilities in Budapest from abroad, not to mention our favorite Canadian member :) the Kokoro website is now available in English as well. I don't promise that the functionality and the content will be equal to the Hungarian version, but from now on the basic dojo information and the calendar will be available in English as well.
