Sensei Richard Strozzi-Heckler announced this week the promotion of Alan and Grayson to the ranks of 5th dan.
Alan was featured here a number of years ago. I’m still trying to rope in Grayson for an interview. But for many Aikidosa in the Great Bay Area who know Grayson and Alan, these promotions should come as no surprise.
And having trained and taken many classes with both of these excellent instructors, the quality of their Aikido is a true testimony to their dedication and love of the Art.
Congratulations to both Alan and Grayson! You are indeed martial artists who are making a difference.
