August Swanson Sensei

Quemazon Aikido was founded in November 2001 by our sensei August Swanson, 4th dan.

Aikido is a martial art which evolved under Morihei Ueshiba from his earlier training under sword, spear, staff and Daito-ryu Jujutsu. This training, combined with his spiritual pursuits led to modern Aikido. The style of Aikido studied at Quemazon Aikido is from his lineage, in affiliation with Robert Nadeau Shihan, 7th Dan, and the California Aikido Association.
