The West Linn Dojo offers a Ki & Kiatsu Class every Thursday.
Our dojo offers a a Ki & Kiatsu class led by Donna Gerten Sensei – Shodan (Black Belt) in Aikido, Chuden (2nd Black Belt) in Ki Development, a graduate of the Personal Kiatsu School and former student of Kiatsu creator, Master Koichi Tohei Sensei.
Our classes are held at the same time as our 6pm Children’s Aikido class, so if you are a parent of a student, you can conveniently take this class while your child trains.
