As a survivor, I realize that sharing my story is imperative to making aikido communities safer and more inclusive. Read about the origins of this website on the About Page. My personal account is not easy to read. When you are in the right space, please read and share your comments through the Contact page. Through reflection and sharing, we can hope for a better future.
Are you an aikido instructor? Are you facing sexual harassment issues in your organization? Once you become aware and acknowledge the importance of being able to provide aikido training free of any abuse, reach out for help. Find resources outside of your aikido organization.
