Dojo Testing

Please join me in congratulating Brian Flaherty on an excellent 6th Kyu test.  Brian has shown a great dedication to the dojo. Just before what was supposed to be his 6th kyu test last summer, he suffered a significant ankle injury in his soccer league.  Despite not being able to practice for over 6 months he came back strong, full of energy and eager to practice.  Congrats again, Brian!.

AKR Welcomes the M.K. Ghandi Institute for Non Violence

We were happy to host a workshop for members of the M.K. Ghandi Institute for Non Violence.  Senseis Hugh, Marcella, and Kerman shared their experience of Kokikai Aikido and how it uniquely reconciles martial arts and the human need for non-violent resolutions to conflict.

If you would like to learn more constructive ways to resolve conflict come visit us.  Also, check out the good works being done at the Ghandi Institute at
