 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I taught Aikido at the University of Arizona, Department of Campus Recreation.   I taught a Basic Level class and an Int/Adv Level.  In January of 2017, stepped down from being the Chief Instructor and turned the class over to my Former student, Michael Pajor, Shodan.  I am still involved but I am now the Senior Instructor Emritus.  
Due to the sudden death of Michael A. Pajor, Shodan at the beginning of January, 2019, I have had to resume my position as Chief Instructor of the Aikido classes at the Unniversity of Arizona.
