Special Announcement

The senior instructors of ASU stand in solidarity behind Saotome shihan and Ikeda shihan during this time of change.

We support the aikido vision of both of these great teachers.

ASU was born through change and holds a rich history of strength, diversity, and leadership.

We will continue to expand our understanding of aikido with the guidance of these two outstanding shihan.

We continue to embrace both Saotome shihan and Ikeda shihan and give them our love and support as aikidoka.
