Bio:
I have a lifetime of training in athletics and martial arts:
From my childhood I trained and competed in boxing, fencing, wrestling, Judo and Aikido.  
In order to keep up my physical conditioning I began weight-training as a 12 year old.
In 1997-1998 I lived as an Uchi Deshi (live-in disciple) under Aikido Shihan (master instructors) Yoshimitsu Yamada Sensei and Seiichi Sugano Sensei and learned the deepest teachings of Aikido. I began teaching Aikido as an uchi deshi at New York Aikikai and became an independent Aikido instructor in 2002.  

In 2007 I began teaching an independent Aikido and Self-Defense class at Moving Body Resources (112 West 27th Street, New York, NY 10001). 

In 2014 I became a Certified Personal Trainer and currently see clients for private personal training sessions on West 27th Street (Moving Body Resources).
