"I invite you to experience Aikido. Aikido is based on non-resistance; you learn to use the opponent's energy and power to defend yourself. Therefore, anyone should be able to protect oneself against the attack of a much larger or stronger person. As with any martial art, it takes time to become proficient in Aikido. For me this journey has become more interesting as I continue to learn new things from my students" Michael Abe

Sensei Michael Abe, 3rd Dan
