"So much enthusiasm and dedication from Lia Sensei! Thank you for teaching our kids so superbly!"
"The work that Suzuki Sensei is doing with her students is phenomenal! I've been to the Santa Barbara dojo and trained as a guest. The dojo is spacious, the students kind and generous - and earnest martial artists."
"If you happen to live in any of the locations where Sensei has a dojo go and train. You will be glad you did. If you have children that are in need of a nourishing and fun environment - Aikido Kenkykai is the place to take them."
