Field Trip on October 15 to Aikido Chuseikan of Tampa Bay

The USF gym is closed on October 15 due to an outside event.

Let’s take advantage of this situation and have a field trip to Aikido Chuseikan of Tampa Bay. Aikido Chuseikan of Tampa Bay overlooks our training and promotions. Many of our USF alumni now train there, including some of our substitute teachers! This field trip will be a great opportunity to meet members of our Aikido community. It is also a great opportunity to train under one of the highest ranked teachers in the area: Sensei Don Ellingsworth.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact so that we can find you a carpool.

See on you on their mat!

6/8/14 Three new 5th Kyu

Pat Mahoney, Zac Atlas, and Wael Al-Sawai were tested at Aikido Chuseikan of Tampa Bay for their 5th Kyu today and, needless to say, all three passed. Every one of our students did a terrific job representing University of South Florida Aikido at today’s test. Congratulations to our new 5th Kyu members.
