Alan Hodges Sensei
ALAN HODGES SENSEI3rd Dan, teaches our Thursday night weapons classes. Alan Sensei first started learning Aikido in high school, from an English teacher in a dance studio. After training for many years in a different style of aikido, Alan Sensei fell in love with Aikido Shusekai at first sight. “Our motto, ‘always train in a spirit of joy,’ surprised me at first,” Alan Sensei says, “because I had not heard anyone say that about Aikido before. Then I realized how well it reminds us where to start when we’ve lost our way. Everything we do builds up from that principle.” Alan Sensei works as an environmental engineer, investigating and cleaning up pollution in soil and groundwater.
