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!
Michiharu and Shuko Mori
