At the heart of all quality self defense training is the ability to remain calm when faced with any threat, real or perceived. This is intrinsic to the art of Nihon Goshin Aikido. Our training methods teach us to adapt and properly respond to whatever confronts us. I have initiated a new emphasis to this Art, NGA REDEFINED. This is based on my unique insights into NGA gained from 50 years of training in my art, from my Black Belt Instructor rankings in many other martial arts, and from my work in Police Patrol and as a Law Enforcement Academy Instructor.
