The Swiss aikido web

Newsletter (March 2020)

Dear friend aikidoka,

The Aikido in Switzerland home page has broken the 720'000 hits few days ago, increasing daily, and recording about 5000 hits per month. This means more than 160 visits per day, everyday! Another top score refers to the calendar page with more than 1'469'200 hits, more than 4'000 visits per month!

With a total of 216 (1 more) dojos listed in 149 (1 more) different cities belonging to 23 distinct states, Aikido In Switzerland is the most comprehensive aikido dojo listings about Switzerland in the world, best of all, it's free, however Aikido In Switzerland relies on YOUR help to keep the database up-to-date. Please check your dojo's entry in the database to make sure all of its information is correct. By doing so, you will help countless other aikido practitioners around the world. To add a new entry or update an existing, just drop me an e-mail, or reply to this newsletter.

For the year 2020, a total of not less than 330 seminars and events have already been notified, and there still are 261 of these to attend until the end of the year, 44 in the current month (few of them could already be past), and some more will certainly be added in the next months.

Thanks to you all, for the information sent.

The running poll question is Do you regularly practice any other activity beside aikido? Please vote and share with other aikidoka your advice.

I'm pleased to recall that Aikido In Switzerland has a RSS feed. Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for content distribution. Aikido In Switzerland offers regular RSS feeds with headlines, descriptions and links back to www.aikido.ch for the full story. Click on the XML button below to get the feed. Use the URL to retrieve the feed if you are using a Web application. You can also install a desktop reader or MS Outlook plug-in to view and manage your RSS feeds. Just let me know whether you need assistance.

Did you already try the feature to retrieve a seminar by date, sensei, or state? Click here. This feature allows you to find out the last added / updated seminars. Just select Last updates, in this case.

You have as well the option to set a reminder for your favorite seminar, or to receive an e-mail when a seminar occurs in your state, or your favorite sensei teaches a seminar. Click here

As you see, Aikido In Switzerland is a very active portal for the aikido community in Switzerland, and the continuous efforts to make it better are reflected in the hits and in the poll results.
