Entries and Movement Geometry

George Ledyard Sensei began his Aikido studies in 1976 under the direct instruction of Mitsugi Saotome Sensei and has continued this association ever since. Ledyard Sensei currently holds the rank of 6th Dan in Aikido.
Sensei Ledyard believes that Aikido should be both a spiritual practice and a martial art. He is known for his work with the staff and sword and also for an innovative approach to applied empty-hand technique which brings in elements from his training in Japanese Koryu, Iaido, Filipino martial arts and Systema.

10th Anniversary of Kulshan Aikikai
Celebration August 3-5 2012
Grand Opening Celebration Seminar with
Rev. Z. Okimura, 6th Dan, Shihan
Rev. Z. Okimura, Shihan lead our Grand Opening Celebration on November 22, 2008.
Okimura Shihan performed a dojo blessing as well as lead students in a seminar. Approximately 100 people joined in the blessing ceremony ans 22 participated in the seminar (which pretty much packed our somewhat small space). Yudansha traveled from Seattle and Oregon to join in our celebration and it was especially gratifying to have many of the original founding students of Kulshan Aikikai come back and celebrate with us. It was truly a special occasion.
Here's a link to pictures of the celebration
