my head instructor has been teaching Aikido as a profession since he retired from the Air Force (after 20 years of service). As he puts it in his book, Aikido Kyohan: "I make my living through teaching Aikido, but I'm not getting rich. I make just enough to get along."

Truly, all he's known is the Air Force and the martial arts, and I feel that he has made the right choice for a career.
