Dojo Class Schedule
Current Status for Dojo training
Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming training environment. To meet the new COVID guidelines for Washington state our class schedule has been reduced. We are currently evaluating additional classes as COVID restrictions are changing. Please reference the schedule on the left for up to date information.
Classes for Children (4-8 years)
We host 2 classes a week for children 4-8 years old, Tuesday and Thursday from 5:20pm to 6:10pm.
Classes for Teens (9-15 years)
We host 2 classes a week for teens 9-15 years old, Tuesday and Thursday from 4:20pm to 5:10pm.
Classes for Adults
There are 4 adult classes during the week. One morning session, Wednesday, from 9:00am to 10:00am. On Tuesdays we have a lunch time class from noon to 1pm. In the evenings there are classes on Monday and Wednesday from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. All levels are welcome, and we have a special focus on beginner's techniques on Wednesday evenings.
We are also currently holding two informal open mat classes on Monday morning, 9-10am, and also Thursday evening, 6:30-7:30. We are using these extra training opportunities to explore the reorganization of the schedule after COVID. All levels are welcome to attend.
Aikido Northshore is a community of families and friends who have come together through Aikido. In 1995 Crawford Sensei opened the doors here in Kirkland and, with the help of her first students, built the mat that we train on today. We have had the privilege of being a part of young people’s lives; watching them grow, leave for college and some returning with their children to continue a new generation. Our dojo is part of a vibrant Aikido community here in Seattle and within the national and international organization of ASU.
In April 2019, Crawford Sensei reconfigured the financial structure of the dojo to officially make it a 501.c non-profit organization. Our instructors, including Sensei Lee, are all volunteers. Your financial support from dues goes into paying for rent, utilities, marketing, supplies, and additional training for some instructors. All the money that you and your family contribute to the dojo stays here and benefits our community.
We ask that you think of dues as a contribution to our larger community. Similar to a donation to public radio, it helps keep a service that we all love available to everyone. This means that if you need to take a month or two off from training, the dojo would still appreciate your contribution, if it is not a financial burden. As an incentive, there are prepayment discounts. If you can afford to pay for 6 months in advance you can get a 5% discount and for 12 months you can save a full 10% discount.
