The Sendokan Dojo is a special place. The commitment to excellence and spirit is palpable. I joined the dojo in January, 2015 and I am completely satisfied with the consistency, intensity and safety of the classes. The instructors are open, approachable, and patient. They are also clearly respected by their peers as top experts in Aikido. The students are dedicated and welcoming. If you are interested in Aikido and can get to the conveniently located dojo, don’t miss the opportunity to learn from some of the best.

Nic Sensai came to teach my grade 8 phys-ed class a month ago, and my students are still talking about it. In an hour’s instruction, he took them through some basics of both Aikido and self-defense. The students loved his humour and his passion; they also enjoyed seeing their teacher led around, helpless, by the wrist. Nic is an excellent teacher, in both the martial and school sense. I recommend using Sendokan Dojo for any similar needs.

Nick, you made such a huge difference in my life.  I’ve told you this before and I want to tell you again.  I came back to aikido when I returned from Poland and I landed at your club when we were all still training at the Olympium.  You taught me – I know I disappointed some in that I didn’t become a black belt…no matter – and you taught my kids when they were very small.  You were my colleague, my friend and my inspiration.  You helped pull me out of a mental health crisis (you may or may not have realized it) I was going through by teaching me aikido from scratch.  Yes, I had been taking it before back in the 80s as you may recall, under Alistair, and yes, Sensei Robert, who in those days was a lowly brown belt who smoked too much if memory serves.  No doubt, I could have gone the way of the black belt.  I had it in me, but it wasn’t meant to be.  Anyway, I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated everything you did for me and the laughs we shared about teaching (you, me and Sensei Dawn).  Thanks to you, fitness became a way of life for me.  If I abandoned aikido, I never abandoned the principles you taught and modelled for me.  God bless you, buddy! I’m thinking about you today and praying that everything will be all right.
