Hello all at Aikiweb
I've been a casual visitor to this site for quite some time and thought it was about time I joined. I also wanted to support my good friend Jun's wonderful contribution to the Aikido community by becoming an AikiWeb Contributing Member.
I encourage everyone to do the same.
Keep up the good job Jun!
As for me I am still a beginner after more than 34 years as a martial artist, 29 of those years in Aikido. I have also practiced Shinkendo under Toshishiro Obata Sensei since 1991. I teach both arts at my dojo in Livermore, CA, about 50 miles east of San Francisco.
My dojo will celebrate its 19 year anniversary next February with a small but very dedicated group of individuals that help make the whole thing possible.
I am also the co-founder of Mugen Dachi Company www.tameshigiri.com
the best source for tatami-omote for tameshigiri practice.
