Dear Suigetsukan Community,
We hope you are doing well in these uncertain times. We miss seeing you all in person, but we appreciate the new (and sometimes unexpected!) ways we’ve been able to connect with one another.
April 6th has passed, but we will continue to offer only online training through Zoom until the shelter in place order has been cancelled. It has been great to see how many of you have been making use of these classes. Though we all miss the physical contact that training brings us, we believe that the online classes will allow all of us to examine the arts we love in new ways that will further our learning.
You can find these classes list on our website. We are continuing to adjust classes to be most useful to our community, so thank you for your patience as we all navigate these new structures.
This time brings financial hardship for many of us, and we ask that only those of you who are financially able to do so continue to pay your memberships. If you are unable to maintain your dues, we understand and support your decision and want you to come to our zoom classes regardless. If you can, use our Paypal account (see the website under about-us/dojo-dues) or send a check to the dojo at 103 International Blvd. Oakland CA 94606. Please remember that when we re-open, you are welcome to train no matter what you can contribute.
As you are able, please take a moment to check in with those dojo members who are in high-risk categories to offer any help that minimizes their need to venture out in public and to let them know you are thinking of them. A phone-call or brief message goes a long way! If you are in need please use the dojo listserve to reach out to others in our community.
If you have any questions related to the above please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care of yourself and others!
The Suigetsukan teaching staff
