Temporary Class Schedule for Phase 2
As we reopen we are using a limited schedule to meet the King County requirements for Phase 2 and adjust for new social distancing guidelines. The calendar to the left shows our new schedule.
Sensei Lee will continue the two swords Zoom sessions on Monday and Wednesday evenings for the time being to continue to include the many out of state people who have shared this series with us.
Below is a description of our typical class schedule. Please use the live calendar to the left to confirm the date and time of the class you're interested in.

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.
