I started in an Aikido Schools of Ueshiba dojo under George Bevins sensei for about four years, starting in 1991. Heavy emphasis on weapons, including iai. I now study and teach Dentokan Jujutsu, an offshoot of Hakko-ryu, which is the "other" child of Daito-ryu. No kumitachi, but we practice a variant of Toyama-ryu as our "aiki-ken".
