Peggy Ilene has been training at Northcoast Aikido for thirty years. In 2008, Read Sensei awarded her the rank of mudan. The great honor of “emptiness” rank indicates that Peggy has advanced in her training to a place beyond rank, as demonstrated by her powerful yet gentle technique, selfless dedication to helping others, and deep commitment to her spiritual practices.
Peggy teaches Wednesday evening adult class as well as the Wednesday afternoon 9 -12 year old class. In addition, Peggy Sensei teaches Aikido to college students at Humboldt State University.
