In 2012 a seminar was held at Two Cranes Dojo in Seattle featuring four of the most interesting and progressive Aikido teachers around today. George Ledyard, Aikido 6th Dan and direct student of Mitsugi Saotome Sensei, Kimberly Richardson, 6th Dan and a senior student of Mary Heiny Sensei, the late Kevin Choate, Aikido 7th Dan and lifelong student of Mitsugi Saotome, and Daniel Messisco, Aikido 6th Dan and direct student of Saotome Sensei as well as other major teachers both in Japan and in the US.Dan Messisco began his Aikido training in 1964. He is a senior student of Mitsugi Saotome Sensei and Hiroshi Ikeda Sensei. He has an extensive background in Tang Soo Do , has trained all over the US and Japan, and counts Suganuma, Takeda, and Endo Senseis as additional influences. He has a unique take on Aikido and is really “one of a kind”. To date, this is the only commercially available video of Dan Messisc teaching Aikido.
