It is with great sadness that ASU shares news of the passing of Thurston Carleton, 6th dan, Aikido Shobukan Dojo Board member, and longtime contributor to the aikido community. Thurston’s deep understanding of aikido principles and commitment to Saotome Shihan’s vision served as an inspiration to us all and benefited many. His time at Shobukan spanned […]
I hope that all Aikidoka everywhere in the world stay safe. Aiki is the ability to recognize circumstances around you and adapt. For example, I hear you are using new technology to keep to keep connected. Very good! I am very proud that my students have put safety first and closed their dojo. Taking care […]

In theory, regular practice of Aikido under a qualified instructor will prepare a student to pass their black belt test and to handle situations of stress, aggression and violence. However, we are often nervous when test time approaches, as subconsciously we don’t have confidence that normal keiko is sufficient preparation for the above-normal stress and performance associated […]

I wanted to thank everyone involved with organizing Patty Sensei's memorial. What a tremendous job you did. I am so impressed with how you coordinated the feeds from all of us, the Shrine, and the DC Dojo.
And thank you to everyone who shared their memories and appreciation of Patty.
If you measure a life by whether the world was better for them having been in it, Patty was a giant. So many lives touched, so many people who will miss her terribly.
Thanks everyone. It was great to see and hear you all... my huge Aikido family. I have missed everyone. ... See MoreSee Less
It was great to see faces from many ages of training. Thank you all. Although a somber occasion, I am sure Patty Sensei would have been pleased we got to see each other again regardless of the circumstance.
