Shunpookan Aikido - United States

Our Blog

An ongoing series of informational entries

Our Latest Blog Entry

June 1st, 2021

A lot of changes coming in 2021. 

We have been adjusting our approach to training throughout the COVID restrictions, though I am very pleased to say we have not had to completely shut down. As things open up we are working to re-establish the physical skills, muscle memory and focus that may have drifted a bit.


Along with that - we are refocusing as a club on Practical Aikido. After 44 years in martial arts I don't see the point of teaching things that don't work in real life, or that rely on some sort of mystical powers or compliant mindset in the student.


We have replatformed our website and I plan on being a lot more active with our web presence. I would like to shift the emphasis from social media to this website as much as possible. I will largely communicate through this blog and work to set up a newsletter for periodic updates.
