Chatting with Robert Nadeau Shihan

After his classes at the Aiki Summer Retreat 2013, Nadeau Shihan stayed to talk with a group of us about O Sensei, Nadeau’s time training in Japan, and taking the principles of Aikido into the world in other contexts.

I chose to train at Aikido of San Diego in part based on Dave Goldberg Sensei’s affiliation with Nadeau, who I was familiar with before I started checking out local dojos. The man is a force of nature, and has had (and continues to have) a huge influence on Aikido in California and beyond. It was a privilege to be able to sit and talk with him.
