Arizona Aikido was founded in 1968 by Jon Mamoru Takagi Sensei. After Takagi Sensei’s death in 1984, Tsuneji Sakakibara Sensei took responsibility for the dojo. As Sakakibara Sensei’s age began to affect his ability to travel, Tom Haines responded to the call to serve as Chief Instructor. We continue training today.
