The dojo will be closing for the year on Thursday 18 December for Aikido classes and we will reopen on Monday 12 January 2015. Flexibility classes will continue as normal throughout the holidays and anyone who is feeling the effects of too much laziness is welcome to join us.
Wishing all our students and friends well during the holidays and we hope to see you back in 2015
It was with deep shock that we learned of the sudden passing of Sensei Ettienne Venter – a longtime stalwart of the Cape Aikido Community
He had a mild heart attack on the morning of 16 December 2013 , followed by a major one 2hours later. Whilst he had been battling somewhat with his health in recent years, it did seem that he had turned a corner for the better.
Sensei Etienne took over the Cape Town dojo after the passing of Jos Niehaus and more recently concentrated on teaching at the Stellenbosch Sakura dojo.
Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
