I went to Japan, wanting to become one of the greatest Aikidoists in the world. 17 years ago at 20 years old, a senior in College, with no idea where Honbu dojo was or where aikido is taught. I simply left to Japan with a dream.

It took me two months to get situated and find Honbu dojo and nearly 6 years to leave.

I went to Japan with a dream, a thought, I wanted to learn Aikido from the best so that I could be like the best.

It's been a bumpy road, with lots of interesting turns, lots of stop signs and lots of miraculous outcomes.

I must admit that all this time I thought I was trying to learn aikido but recently discovered that it wasn't aikido that I was learning.

Life is so amazing and beautiful.
