I began my Aikido training in South Carolina over a decade ago as a student of David Shaner Sensei who was a student of Koichi Tohei Sensei and who also practiced Aikido with Clayton Naluai Sensei here at Lokahi Ki Society back in the 1970’s.  In 2003 I moved to Honolulu, and began training with Clayton Naluai Sensei here at Lokahi Ki Society.  Four years later, in 2007, Naluai Sensei appointed me to the position of Head Instructor at Lokahi Ki Society.  I currently hold the rank of 5th. Dan Black Belt in Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido.  I am a Professor of Spanish Literature at Hawaii Pacific University here in Honolulu , where I am also fortunate enough to chair the Department of Languages and Applied Linguistics.  I am married to my beautiful wife Celine Boyer.
