Good Morning...

...My name is Michael Gelum, Mickey or Miku-san to my friends.

I live in Youngstown, Ohio, United States and am a student of Aikido for 28 years. I am a Sandan with the American Academy of Aikido, a Nidan with Japan Aikido Association. I currently have two schools, and am in the process of opening a club at the local university.
My primary training was guided by Merritt Stevens Shihan, he is greatly missed and his memory lives on. Currently I am guided byTetsuro Nariyama Shihan, Dave Nettles Sensei, Moe Stevens Sensei and Wade Current Sensei.
I have trained under other great senseis, here and abroad....I do not limit myself when it comes to instruction...all have a path and I would like to walk with everyone as far as they will allow me.

Again, greetings...

Hi Michael,

Welcome to AikiWeb. In the future, please don't italicize your entire post, as doing so makes what you write harder to read. Thanks.
