We are very pleased to announce a live-streamed Zoom seminar class taught by Lia Suzuki Sensei this Saturday at 12 pm CDT | 19:00 CET | 5 pm UTC!


Lia Suzuki Sensei, Aikikai, 6th dan, is a senior student of Yoshinobu Takeda Shihan and National Director and Founder of Aikido Kenkyukai International USA.

For nearly 10 years, she lived and trained intensively under Takeda Shihan in Japan. Suzuki Sensei’s experience in Japan also gave her the opportunity to train with the late Yamaguchi Sensei and other notable masters.

She currently is based in Los Angeles, and directly oversees several dojos in her network in the USA and the UK. Suzuki Sensei travels extensively throughout the world, teaching at dojos outside of her affiliation, as well.

Her mission is to foster inclusion in the Aikido world, rather than division, and to increase Aikido’s popularity among youth, Gen Z-er’s, and Millennials.
