12 Weeks of Kids Classes in New Denver

Kids Classes for ages 3-5 and 6-9 will commence March 5th 2017, running Sundays for 12 weeks. This will be an opportunity for kids in the north Slocan Valley to try aikido classes closer to home. We will be taking a field trip to the main dojo in Slocan, and are invited to participate in a half-day seminar (date TBA). Rebecca, a student of Roland sensei and resident of New Denver, will offer children’s classes twice per year to expose kids to martial arts training, etiquette, and for fun. Her daughter will be in this year’s 3-5 year old class.

To Register, please contact rebecca@whitepinesdojo.com

Children who would like to train year-round are encouraged to train at the main dojo. Bursaries for annual tuition costs are available, as well as uniform subsidies. Please contact Marcia for details.

Kids Seminar!

Our next Kids Seminar will be held on Saturday, Dec. 20 from 11am- 5pm

Kates-kidsGasshukus, or seminars, are an important part of martial arts training.

Kids’ seminars offer an opportunity for children to practice endurance with longer intensive classes, and to create connections with their classmates they may not otherwise make during the rest of the term.

Testing, at the end of each seminar, also gives kids a chance to perform their skills, building confidence and earning respect.

Call the dojo (355-0009) to register, or for more info!

Slocan Spring Clean-up Day May 18th

Sunday May 18th we’ll be walking into Slocan from the dojo to clean up the trash revealed by the spring melt. This is a great opportunity to show kids that we care for our greater environment and community.

Join us for a snack at 1pm (after kids classes), and we’ll start walking at 1:30 toward town. Gloves will be provided; please dress in weather appropriate grubbies and shoes.
