My name is Motier. I currently live, teach and practice in Fairfield Iowa. I have been training for 34 years beginning in Brooklyn NYC with Luqman sensei, Yamada sensei in Manhattan, Yusef and Arif Mehter sensei in Syracuse, NY, Rick Stickles sensei in NJ, Irv Faust Sensei in Albany NY, Peter Bernath sensei in Fort Lauderdale Florida, and now I'm chief instructor at the Fairfield Iowa Aikikai, and have a strong connection to the University of Iowa Aikikai. Now that's a mouth full. Aikidc has been my life.
