Our dojo hosts professional instructors that hold senior ranks in Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (“ASU”) and Aikikai Foundation in Japan. Many of our instructors travel worldwide to train in and conduct seminars. They do this to continue growing their skills, knowledge, and wisdom. In addition to Aikido, many instructors also have trained and continue to train in other martial arts to continue honing their skills. We are honored to host them here, and have them on our board.
Some members also are awarded Ueshiba-Juku designation which is bestowed upon practicioners who represent transmission reception from the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba (“O-Sensei”), to Mitsugi Saotome Shihan (“Sensei”), through to the instructors. A calligraphy may be present on the gi of these members.
