“We intend to create a space where we can host visiting instructors like years past, and our members are very excited about this prospect.”

 

For the AKI Pennsylvania dojo 2016 has been a year of many changes, as we have had an increase in membership due to two AKI California members moving back to the east coast.  We have also moved one of our long time kids class members, Stefan, to the adult class, and he is doing a great job of watching and copying.

With the addition of new members we have been able to ensure a more consistent class schedule, offering 3 classes per week. In past years the attendance had dropped to the point where AKI PA was forced to move to a location that is not really conducive to growth or hosting of high level teachers.

With current membership we are very excited to continue thinking big, and we are currently searching for a new space. We are looking just north of the city of Philadelphia along the Montgomeryville to Willow Grove corridor for a shared space with high visibility and traffic.

Our intention is to offer at least 2 kids classes and 3 adults classes per week to start.  Once we find our new space we intend to create a space where we can host visiting instructors like years past, and our members are very excited about this prospect.

What Others Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our dojo members & alumni do the talking!

"Lia Suzuki Sensei is a highly qualified teacher of Aikido. She is one of the senior women in the United States in the art. Her training history is top notch and her instruction is powerful, clear, and personable. Very professional."

George Ledyard

Chief Instructor, Aikido Eastside

"I've found Suzuki Sensei to be a very effective teacher and martial artist. She combines quality of communication, technical proficiency, and a sense of joy in her teaching and technique.

I am also very impressed with her drive and commitment to improving access to Aikido programs for youth, especially those who might otherwise not have the opportunity to receive the benefits of Aikido training"

Charles Colten

Director/Chief Instructor, Aikido in the Schools

"Lia spent years in Japan absorbing the essence of Aikido training and Japanese perseverance and grace from great teachers, and in turn she now transmits that depth of feeling to her students. Her fundraising and charitable works are exemplary, and she does lots with very little. She is admired from far and wide."
