Pangainoon Aikido
12-25-2008, 12:20 PM
Formally I studied Uechi Ryu, it's root form being Pangainoon, hence the name Pangainoon Aikido. Pangainoon means half hard, half soft and its primary kata is San Chin. Since this is the martial art that I have studied since 1962 it has had a profound influence upon the manner in which I do and teach Aikido.

We live on a family farm and have a small dojo on the farm where a few of us work out on a regular basis. Since we are in a rural area just outside of Everett, PA we do not have large classes and their is no charge for the classes.

Since 2001 I have either assisted or taught Aikido at the United States Martial Arts assn. summer camps in St. Louis. I initially started training with an affiliate of The United States Aikido Federation (USAF) and then started teaching via the USMA. The syllabus that I utilize is primarily from the USAF along with two of the kata's from Pangainoon.
