Our sister dojo, Shindai Aikikai in Orlando will be again hosting Kevin Choate Sensei this September 23-25. Fees are $85 pre-registered, $95 at the door.

Kevin Choate Sensei has thirty years’ of Aikido experience. He began training in 1976 with Shigeru Suzuki Sensei, where he learned the fundamentals of vigorous training and rarely missed a class. He became chief instructor at Chicago Aikikai in 1981 and has earned a reputation for high-quality instruction, always demanding the best from his students as well as himself in his own personal training. Choate Sensei has trained thousands of Aikido students in the Chicago area, including classes for senior citizens, youth, actors, and dancers.

In 1998, Mitsugi Saotome Shihan awarded Choate Sensei his 6th degree black belt as recognition of his skill and dedication to Aikido. Today, Choate Sensei continues to train as a student of Saotome Shihan and Hiroshi Ikeda Shihan. Choate Sensei teaches as a senior instructor for the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba and travels frequently to conduct Aikido seminars across the country and overseas.
