Aikido Borealis will be closed in the interest of minimizing physical contact due to the COVID-19 virus. We expect to be closed through the end of May, and will normally follow the Anchorage School District class schedule posted online at

In lieu of attending class, please take some time to stretch, move and breathe.

Aikido is about self defense while protecting others; be safe out there!
