Steve West - Dojo Cho

I began martial arts training in JuJitsu in 1979 in Auckland, and Aikido in 1986, before being graded shodan by Dianne sensei in Rotorua in 1993. I currently hold the rank of Yondan (4th Dan). More recently I graded shodan in the traditional Japanese sword style, Yagu Shinkage Ryu. 

I have led Mitcham Aikido since 2010 in Melbourne Australia as part of my commitment to my ongoing learning of Aikido and teaching others who have a similar desire to explore this wonderful art.
