I started practicing in 1980 with John Smartt Sensei in his garage with a few other die-hard Aikidoists. I received my Shodan rank from him in 1986.

I've practiced with several fantastic teachers for various periods of time: Jack Wada Sensei in San Jose, CA; Tri Dang in Sacramento, CA; and Master Phong Dang in Garden City, CA.

I spent about 2 years practicing with Robert Nadeau Sensei in Mt. View, CA where I was awarded the rank of Nidan in 1995.

After moving to Oregon, I have been practicing with Fred Phillips Sensei at OGI Aikido in Hillsboro, OR.
