Erickson Sensei started training in Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido in 1988. He eventually opened his own dojo in 1993. Aikido is a dynamic martial art with techniques to defend against all kinds of attacks whether armed or unarmed. (weapons like sword, bokken, jo, knife, guns and much more.)
We teach kids as well. Its not as much about the childs physical age, its their mental age. So we usually do an assessment to see if they are ready for us.
We have some video up on our website and facebook pages:
