Elmonica Elementary on hold
The Elmonica Elementary program schedule was put on hold for the 2017-2018 school year. The school district has made a number of changes to their rules for after-school programs and we are working to setup a new plan that fits with the new requirements. No classes are currently scheduled.
Adult Classes (possible future program)
We would like to start a teens and adults ki and aikido class in Beaverton. We are looking for a good facility for such a class. We would be looking for either a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday evening class schedule. If you have an interest in participating in such a program or have suggestions about where we might hold such a class please let us know so we can include your input in our discussions. email@example.com
If you would like to start a discussion about a ki and/or aikido class in your school or neighborhood facility we would love to talk with you about such opportunities. We have a number of experienced instructors in the Beaverton area. Please contact Mark Hutchinson at firstname.lastname@example.org
