What we're about

We’re a practice group dedicated to introducing, seeking, and sharing aikido principles as taught by our mentor, Haruo Matsuoka Sensei, 6th Dan. Through aikido practice, we look to promote physical and mental self-development. Our practice is based on integrity, mutual respect, building friendship, and a seeking spirit. The group is organized by Lester Sapitula, a student of Matsuoka Sensei. For more information, please visit We look forward to you joining us!
