In Loving Memory

2014-01-11 12.02.40-1Our Sensei, Robert ‘Bob’ Graebel, passed out of this material plane of existence on Thursday, March 20, 2014. His aikido technique was a beautiful thing to behold. Smooth and gentle, yet powerful and controlling. He always emphasized proper movement and proper etiquette to his students. 45 degrees was to be 45, not 70! On time was late! His teaching and example will live in our hearts forever. We love you, Sensei.

Takeguchi Shihan will be in the area from Sept. 10-14, 2014, per the flyer below.

Come and learn from a true Aikido treasure!

Bonus: a night at Maywood Park Race Track watching Team Leonard.
