Sadly, we are one of the many small businesses directly impacted by Covid-19.
Aikido is a full contact grappling martial art where social distancing is a practical impossibility. As such we are last on California’s phased re-opening plan. Quite understandably, multiple families and students have made it clear they will not risk their health in any outside-the-family physical activities until the infection rate is negligible. That could be many months or years more. Financial support from State and Federal agencies have reached amounts well below our expenses, including the dojo rent. This is a great loss for our teachers and our community. The future is unknown, but we move forward with faith and optimism.
