I have been training in Aikido since 1981, I started because I was being left at home 4 nights a week when David began training with Sensei Ken. From the very first Nikkyo he applied to my wrist I was hooked.
As the years have gone by my Aikido has changed and one of my greatest joys has finding other ways of doing techniques. I know I have a very distinct style and hope I am good at sharing. I LOVE TEACHING.
Both of my beautiful children have their 2nd Dans and watching them grade has been one of the highlights of my Aikido journey
I am big, bold and loud and I am proud to say unlikely to change..
