Black Belt and thanks!

Thank you & congrats to all students, teachers, family members and friends

We have all participated in a hugely amazing event. As a community we have successfully prepared and passed three black belt students.  There is a very long list of people to thank so in case you are not called out individually please know our entire dojo tribe is responsible for helping these students move forward, that includes YOU!

I know myself, black belts and students are extremely grateful for the support of Aikido of Reno and their chief instructor Vince Salvatore.  Large thanks go out to the Ueno and Hatai Families for the various helpful things that happened day of and the preparations long before the workshop. Also, the sempai and ukes who took part in the black belt tests.

This truly was a community effort and I am extremely grateful for all your participation.

Restorative Yoga with Nita  – November, 19th 4-6pm

Living in a non-stop society, people tend to be incredibly busy and pack as much as possible into their day. Restorative Yoga provides an important break to recharge and regroup. After class you will feel more calm, relaxed, and sleep better, as well as be more productive and focused.

Research shows participation of relaxation classes also leads to an improvement of self-perceived quality of life, specifically, improved confidence, physical ability, psychosocial functioning, and a sense of empowerment.

No yoga experience is necessary and all props are provided! So what are you waiting for? Sign up today and bring a friend :)

Reserve your spot early by calling or emailing us TODAY! 702-719-1177 or


Don’t forget! The dojo will be closed for Thanksgiving, November, 23rd – November, 28th. We will re-open Monday, November 28th for all regular classes. 

Have a safe and happy holiday!!
