A Chat with Northwest Nihon Goshin Aikido
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
NWNGA has been in Bellevue, WA since 1997 and features instruction from Martial Arts Hall of Fame Inductees. NWNGA is the only Nihon Goshin style Aikido School west of the Mississippi and employs techniques passed down over centuries from Samurai Warriors.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
Must be ages 7+
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I started studying Nihon Goshin Aikido in 1991 in New York, I then opened NWNGA in 1997. Nihon Goshin Aikido is a unique Martial Art and after the years I've dedicated to mastering my craft, I believe it is my responsibility to share this form of Martial Arts.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that I am an ambassador for Nihon Goshin Aikido and am able to share and teach this art form. I am very fortunate in that my job allows me to watch as my students grow and the discipline that they have learned through Aikido influences the decisions they make throughout their lives.
