It is already the end of 2017. It is time for greetings, wishes, and resolutions! This year I've turned 60. In Japan, this is a special time when you take the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends, and thank them for their love and support during all those years. Reflecting on my life, I realized that most of what has happened would not have been possible without the extraordinary support of family, friends, and students from all over the world. Many times I thought of quitting aikido. Sometimes, taking an easier path in moments of great doubt seemed more [...]

Hello Everyone, It has been a productive training month with Jacques Payet Shihan's visit to Southern California. His aikido teaching as well as his way of being touched us deeply. If you missed his seminars from Los Angeles Aikido, here is a video clip of his teaching we found extremely valuable. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a717UTPxrCo] In Aikido Del Mar, many youth students joined the adults in the seminars and have too learned ways to obtain better balance, easier ways to connect and more fluid movements.
