More about Christy

I have been at Seattle School of Aikido since 1982, and I consider Mary Heiny and several of Mary’s then-senior students—Pam Cooper, Joanne Venziano, George Ledyard—as her main teachers. Prior to joining the dojo here, I practiced Akikdo casually at a small dojo In Kyoto, Japan, for three years while I was teaching English. I received my Nidan in 1988.
