Aikido Promotions

AIKIDO PROMOTIONS for 1st - 8th grade students will be held this month at the New School Aikido Dojo at 880 Piner Rd # 55, Santa Rosa (between Range & Airway).

Come on out for this special once-a-year opportunity to observe and cheer on your child as s/he earns their colored belt for the effort, discipline, and mindfulness they have dedicated to their Aikido practice with Sensei Wisdom this year. As a special opportunity, students are also welcomed and encouraged to join the Aikido class beforehand to experience their practice in the wonderfully peaceful and inspiring setting of the dojo. Seating can be a bit tight, so arrive early if you can, and don’t forget to bring your camera!

The FREE AIKIDO CLASS will be held from 5:30-6:30om and PROMOTIONS will take place from 6:30-7pm (specific end time depends upon number of participants).


Each class is designated for a specific night. Please sign up on the sheet outside your child’s classroom if s/he can make it. * If your student cannot make it on the assigned evening, but is available the other night, no problem — just let Sensei Wisdom know so he can be prepared that evening with your child’s belt.

Some Background: The Aikido Tradition at VCS

Sensei Isaiah Wisdom of New School Aikido has been coming to VCS for many years to teach Aikido to all of the school's 1st - 8th graders. Village students have grown and thrived under his tutelage. Students are eager to attend, practice what they have learned, and earn their belts.

It's an integral part of our curricular program that is considered as much of a life skill education as it is a physical practice. Aikido is a nonviolent martial and self-defense art developed in Japan in the early 1900s. It is a powerful, proactive, nonviolent method of resolving conflict whose practice brings a sense of vitality, confidence, unity, and fulfillment to our entire student body.

David Kerwin, thank you so much for getting us new computers for our computer lab! They are literally four times faster than what we had, which will enable our students to do their typing practice, research, digital presentations, yearbook work, graphic design, and even CAASPP testing way more easily! You've made such an enormous difference for all of our 3rd through 8th graders. Thank you, thank you!!  -Emma
