|Classes Suspended due to COVID-19
Friends, we are living in extraordinary times.
We are living in a world we have never experienced before.
We are all anxious, stressed, short tempered, and scared.
The world feels as if it is spinning out of our control.
Now, more than ever, we appreciate the fundamentals of our practice, of calmness, of relaxation, of letting go of our need for control, and of maintaining the one point.
The core of our training is not in learning how to throw people and defend ourselves, but in learning how to deal with the uncertainties inherent in this world.
Please know that I share in the anxieties, the stress, and the fear of what is happening.
This reaction is natural; it is ok to feel this way.
We will all do our best to deal with this.
The Riverchase of Fenton will be closed for an indeterminate amount of time.
This is the correct decision to prevent the spread of the virus.
We are all disappointed that we cannot train, that we cannot test, and that we cannot enjoy each other's company.
We will get Fenton Ki Aikido up and running as soon as the Recreation Center reopens.
I am confident that the Fenton Recreation Center will make this decision under the guidance of the experts in the CDC and other specialists.
We will post updates here as they become available.
Until we see each other again.
Please be safe.
And help other people get their balance back.
With plus Ki. Maintaining One Point.
Tom and Alice
