Happy 50th Milwaukee Aikido Club!

Norio “Mike” Mamura, Dojo Founder

This weekend, our old friends the Milwaukee Aikido Club celebrate 50 years of dedicated training with a special anniversary seminar. The dojo was founded in 1967 by  Norio “Mike” Mamura Sensei (1918-2000), who was originally from Koolau on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, and began studying Aikido by traveling from Milwaukee to the old Illinois Aikido Club in Chicago.

The instructor lineup for the seminar includes guest Hiroshi Ikeda Shihan (7th dan, Boulder Aikikai), Debra Mamura Belter Sensei (3rd dan, Mamura Sensei’s daughter and current Chief Instructor of Milwaukee Aikido Club), and Chicago Aikido Club‘s own Joe Takehara Sensei (6th dan).

The seminar is being held at the Milwaukee School of Engineering Kern Center. Full details are available at the dojo website.
