Board Members

Aikido Mountain West is built upon a shared recognition that an organization is defined by its people.  We know each other personally, value and care for our training partners, and seek joy in our practice.  In so doing, we cultivate wisdom beyond knowledge, service beyond self, and honor above everything.
