Meet your Sensei

Mission Statement – In this age of ‘sport for all’ ; my mission is to facilitate life-long learning opportunities for the local community; specifically through Shodokan Aikido. Keeping mind and body healthy through the practice of ‘kata’ and ‘randori’. Tailoring these two elements to the age and physical ability of all participants.
