  • Thank you Sensei for all your years of dedication to our kids and Aikido 🙏🏼

  • Its a fun martial art and has a lot of good things to learn but I always fear it gives people a false impression that they can defend themselves. Without real randori ( and/or a sport component) you will not be prepared to defend yourself.

    • Are you kidding me

    • Aikido’s more kinda like Yoga. Helps you attain your inner balance, that sort of thing. I don’t think moving around all gracefully and shit, the way you see people do, practicing Aikido, is gonna help you fend off some whacked-out assailant you might encounter. People say it help ’em, though, like Yoga.
