Evan Bucy began studying Aikido in 1995 at Two Cranes Aikido, where he obtained the rank of shodan in 2008. Evan joined the Seattle School of Aikido in 2013 to study Icho Ryu from Neil Yamamoto. He began teaching our kids/teens classes at that time under the direction of Helmut Floss, and in 2016 Evan took over as chief instructor of the Kids/Teens program. Evan has also casually studied other martial arts including Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Kali, Aikibojitsu, Jeet Kune Do, and Silat.
In 2018, Neil Yamamoto granted Evan Icho Ryu Junior Instructor status.
Evan is assisted by Zak Fiorito and Chris Moses, as well as other Seattle School of Aikido instructors and senior students. Advanced high school students also assist.
