Thanks to Robby Pellett for teaching the Monday night aikido class. For those who had a chance to train with Robby, you got a unique glimpse into the teachings of one of the aikido giants – Minoru Mochizuki. Mochizuki was a direct student of Jigoro Kano, the founder of judo, Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido, and Gichin Funakoshi, the founder of Shotokan Karate.
Robby trained with Mochizuki sensei for 6 years and you can see some distinct differences between Yoseikan Aikido and the Aikikai Aikido generally taught in this area.
If you didn’t get a chance to train with Robby or would like another opportunity to experience Yoseikan Aikido, stay tuned for our Thursday night special instructor series.
