Dear all the students of Aikido Yoshinkan Brisbane Dojo and supporters of Mori Sensei in the world,

Please visit our Facebook site to find our virtual class videos. Sensei will upload these videos regularly in the hope that more students will keep training with him though the dojo is closed and we cannot train together on the mats. Please everyone, stay healthy and keep improving your Aikido ability while you are away from the dojo. Best regards, Michiharu and Shuko Mori

Online classes are on the way!

Dear all the students of Aikido Yoshinkan Brisbane Dojo,

We hope all of you are well and safe. Although we had to close our dojo, Mori Sensei has been thinking how he can keep running his classes and communicating with you while we comply with the Government's rules. Some sort of online classes is the answer we believe that the other gym instructors are using. We haven't decided what method we are going to choose, like live apps or recorded video, we will definitely work on it. To start with, Sensei will probably use Facebook to upload his class video. So, please look forward to it. We always thank you for your sincere devotion to the dojo.

Best regards,

Michiharu and Shuko Mori

Following PM's address this evening

23 Mar 2020

Dear all the students of Aikido Yoshinkan Brisbane Dojo,

Very regretfully, but understandably, PM has just announced all the closures of clubs, pubs, gyms, places of worship, cinemas, casinos and licensed areas of hotels as of midday tomorrow on Monday 23rd. This means that we cannot hold the last classes or grading tomorrow night. We are very sorry for all the students who planned to come to the dojo tomorrow or to grade on this Saturday. We are truly grateful for having been able to run the dojo for nearly 25 years and this was possible only because of our students' sincere devotion and contribution to the dojo. We are very proud of Aikido Yoshinkan Brisbane Dojo for its strength, unity and harmony. Although we would love to keep opening the dojo for anyone who wish to keep training, we must place a stop just for now and wish to reopen when the circumstances change and the dojo will be a safe environment again for all of you. We are so sorry for children and teenagers too who have been enjoying training and gaining so much out of training. We wish all of you for your well-being and safety. We shall see you again on the mats when the right time comes. IN meantime, we will keep strengthening our body and spirit!

Sincerely yours,

Michiharu and Shuko Mori

Dear Everyone of Aikido Yoshinkan Brisbane Dojo,

Firstly, we thank you deeply for your continued training with us. As the rapid and worldwide escalation of COVID-19 has forced us to change our lives and environment, regretfully, our dojo also most likely need to close and cancel all the classes soon. Assuming tomorrow, Monday the 23rd March, will be the last day of the dojo classes, we wish to offer all the students who were planning to grade on this Saturday to grade tomorrow during the second class. You can train in the first class from 6pm and grade straight after. We will inform you with further details once we hear the Government's stricter restrictions expected to be annouced tomorrow. We wish your well-being and safety under this uncertain circumstances. We will keep supporting each other and being thoughful and kind to one another. Thank you so much for your understanding. Best Regards, Michiharu and Shuko Mori
