Our Coaches

Our staff and instructors at Main Street Martial Arts work on a year-round basis to make sure that your experience at Main Street Martial Arts is the best that it can be.  All staff members and instructors are approachable at any time to answer your questions about the school, to address any concerns that you may have, and to support you in every way possible.

Our Principles                                                                                (From Birankai NA)

  • We are dedicated to the sincere practice of the art of Aikido as created by its founder, M. Ueshiba, and transmitted by his student, T.K. Chiba, Shihan.
  • We each integrate our training into a way of life such that our training adds to our total development as individuals; across our physical, mental, spiritual, and social dimensions.
  • We continually challenge ourselves to deeper personal growth by advancing our training in Aikido and augmenting it with related martial disciplines; particularly those derived from Iaido and Zen meditation practices.
  • We are generous in sharing our experience with our juniors and welcome all people to join our community of practice.

Our Vision                                                                                       (From Birankai NA)

Aikido training leads to personal transformations. Relentless and rigorous pursuit of this training, in an inclusive and nurturing environment of mutual respect, maximizes this transformation process. The inclusion of complimentary traditions such as Iaido and Zen meditation practices in our training also maximize this transformation process. These transformations result in positive impacts on our lives, relationships and communities. For example: overall health, a better understanding of how our actions affect others, an enhanced sense of personal responsibility, and a connectedness to the world around us.
