A Chat with Aikido Kimori Dojo of Orange County
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our classes are conducted in a manner consistent with Aikikai schools in Japan. We have strong support from regional and international instructors. And, we know how to have fun, too.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Learn to say, "Onegai-shimasu" and "Domo arigato gozimashta". The first is said at the start of practice. The other when we finish.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
With more than 15-years in aikido training, I'm passionate about sharing what I've learning and empowering others to discover this art of peace.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching the light go 'on' in a student's eyes. It brings me a lot of joy to see people meet new challenges and succeed.
