Ledyard Sensei started Aikido in 1976 under Mitsugi Saotome Sensei. Since then he has cross trained extensively and has authored 9 instructional video titles which have sold world wide. He is also a long time contributor to Aikido Journal and AikiWeb where his writings have been well received.

Both teachers teach extensively both nationally and internationally.

I am really excited to be doing this event alongside Bill Gleason Sensei. I'm hoping that folks will find the event to be an inspiring way to start off their training for the New Year.

Here are some sample video clips.

This was a terrific seminar. Gleason and Ledyard Senseis work well together. When Gleason Sensei was teaching, Ledyard Sensei frequently was on the mat working with us one-on-one. Since this was my first time working with either of them, this personal attention and skilled teaching was very helpful in beginning to understand the subtle and, for me, quite difficult technique. Highly recommended. Looking forward to the "cutting edge" seminar in Seattle in June, with both of them among the instructors.
