Elmonica Elementary on hold
The Elmonica Elementary program schedule has not yet been established for the 2018-2019 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 at Elmonica Elementary.
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
