WELCOME ON AIKIKAI-ZÜRICH!
Dear club members,
I hope you’re well and healthy. Surely many of you have waited eagerly for the Dojo to open again.
Now the time has come, from Tuesday, June 2, 2020, the Dojo will be open again.
We have planned a limited dojo operation to protect the health of all members according to the requirements of the BAG/BASPO and have submitted the prescribed protection concept to the Federal Office BAG/BASPO. In parallel, the TK has worked intensively on the implementation of the protection concept.
The Executive Board and the TC were now surprised by the comprehensive relaxation which the Federal Council had already decided on 6 June. This is of course very positive, as from 2 June we will only have to practice in the dojo for a short time under strict conditions in accordance with the protection concept.
We are in the process of clarifying the change to the normal training schedule, but we still need some time for this.
Therefore we would like to start the dojo operation from June 2nd on according to the enclosed concept and training plan as planned. The board and TC will inform you as soon as possible about further changes.
We wish you a lot of fun and joy at the start of the training.
Many greetings in the name of the board of the Aiki-Kai Zurich
Dear club members,
Also we from the Technical Commission are looking forward to see you soon in the Dojo again. Under the given circumstances we will reorganize the Aikido training in the first days after June 2nd and will shed light on other interesting aspects of Aikido.
In the first place, the health of all of us is our top priority. Therefore please read carefully the three leaflets on the implementation of the protection concept for our Dojo; they contain general guidelines and rules of conduct as well as information on cleaning and hygiene.
The most important facts in brief: After June 2nd, we will train without physical contact and at a minimum distance of 2 meters. For the size of our dojo, a maximum of 10 persons (including the teacher) are allowed. Also when entering and leaving the dojo, the 2 meter distance should be strictly observed. The cloakrooms can only be used to a limited extent. Hands and feet can and should be washed in the dojo, showering is not possible at the moment.
It is important that all of us follow the established rules on our own responsibility. Please help!
The Dojo will open its doors after Whitsun on June 2nd, 2020 and we will be able to practice according to the almost regular schedule. Under the following link
you can sign up for one lesson per evening, bindingly and at least 24 hours before the start.
There may be some of you who prefer not to come to the dojo despite all our arrangements. Please let us know under the following doodle link, so we can see if and for which Keiko you would like to stream:
If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact a member of the TC or the board. We will be happy to help you where there are uncertainties.
Best regards and see you soon in the dojo
Daniel Perruchoud and the whole TC of the Aiki-Kai Zurich
