What Students Say:

I think the best thing about training at the Shudokan is that after almost two and a half years I have not had a single class that I have walked away from without having enjoyed myself and learned something new. - Aaron Cananzi

I started learning Aikido in my 50s and it has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. What a gift it is to do a physical practice that trains your mind, body and spirit together. - Marvin Oka
