"I feel like I am learning something useful. Aikido helps me deal with hard situations in everyday life, it makes me feel calm and also helps me avoid pursuers while playing tag at school."

"As a parent, I really like the positive and supportive environment of the teachers and students at the dojo. It feels like a family, and my son had really connected with the people there. I think this is a great place for my teenage son to burn off some energy and build relationships with people who will encourage and challenge him."
- Cindy Yandell
After a 20 year break, I decided to rejoin a local Aikido dojo again and introduce Aikido to my 5 year old son as well. My son and I are very lucky to have found Sensei Goettsche and his relaxed and yet passionate style is exactly what I was looking for. The genuine respect and shared positive energy amongst all of us is why we have no plans of leaving anytime soon and chances are that a third member of our family will be joining as soon as she turns 5 as well.

Our dojo is a friendly place—we have students of all ages, both men and women, boys and girls, and of various ranks. People are welcoming and students seem committed to learning and advancing, though not competitively. In fact, students seem to enjoy helping each other learn techniques, working carefully and thoughtfully with each other... our training takes place on many different levels—physically, of course, but also intellectually and philosophically.
- Janice Gould
Goettsche Sensei ‘s approach to Aikido allows everyone to participate fully and gain a true appreciation and understanding of this dynamic martial art. His expertise and patience have been particularly helpful to me as a 61 year old “beginner”. As a result of his training, all of the students in the dojo are accommodating and very friendly. Domo arigato gozaimashita, Sensei.
