Toronto Aikikai together with Brampton Aikikai are happy to invite you and your child
to participate in the first of two Children's Aikido Seminars planned for 2009, the first one in
June at Brampton Aikikai and the second one in October at Toronto Aikikai.
Classes - The first seminar will take place on Sunday June 7, and children,
their parents, Aikido students and instructors from both dojos will be participating in three
fun-filled Aikido classes, two in the morning from 10:00 to 11:00 am and from 11:15 to 12:15 pm,
followed by a lunch break from 12:15 until 1:00 pm and then an Aikido and Games class from
1:00 to 2:00 pm.
All classes are open to children, their parents, dojo members and visitors, and no previous
experience is required. The Children's class normally scheduled at Toronto Aikikai is cancelled
Instructors - The classes will be taught by the Children Class instructors from both
dojos, including Dieter, Yelitza, Brian and myself from our dojo and Tony, Ray and Richard
from Brampton Aikikai. Advanced students from both dojos are welcome to assist.
Cost - The cost for participation in the seminar is $20, which includes the classes
Lunch - Lunch will be from 12:15 to 1:00 pm, and will consist of pizza, snacks,
oranges, juice and anything else parents may bring. Lunch is included in the cost of the seminar,
and if you are a parent and will come but will not be participating in the classes, please
consider bringing something to contribute to the lunch. If the weather is nice the lunch will be
outdoors, otherwise it will be indoors. Please let us know if your child has a food allergy of any type.

Martial Arts room of the Terry Miller Recreation Center, 1295 Williams Parkway, at the corner with
