Sean
I consider myself lucky for going to a school at an early age, and it gives me a better chance for learning everything at aikido. One of my favorite things to do is spar, although I have much to learn. Sean

I have been attending Bushido Academy for over two years. The prospect of obtaining exercise and self-defense training at the same time allows for efficient use of my time. Sensei's knowledge of the material is thorough and is presented in a down to earth manner. A sense of comradely has developed between the students and the material is presented in a fun and interesting manner as well. A mixture of classical and real world applications are combined. The mental aspects of discipline and cadence are reinforced. The material is applicable to a wide range of ages , sizes and body types. Ronnie Pentecost

The classes are a mixture of expanding one’s skill with the traditional aspect of the material, as well as presenting relevant applications to real life situations. Students are taught discipline and self-control, along with how to work with others. Sensei Rester instructs in a professional manner, and has a clear, extensive knowledge of the material.

Mark
I consider myself fairly athletic, but this is far more challenging than any sport I have ever played. I enjoy the physical aspect of aikido as much as the mental. What I've found truly amazing about the classes here, is how well everyone helps and encourages each other. Mark job 1
