Tom began training at Northcoast Aikido in the spring of 1996. He learned about teaching young people from Peggy Ilene and Teresa Kung, assisting in their classes. Tom has now been teaching at our dojo for over a decade. His love for wild nature keeps him rooted in this special place on the coast.
Tom says: “The lessons I have learned, along with the relationships I’ve developed at our beautiful dojo have influenced me deeply and have improved the quality of my life beyond measure. I hope for all people to one day experience peace together.”
