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.
