The Instructor

Sensei Jesse Arnold

Head Instructor

My name is Jesse Arnold, and I have trained in Martial Arts for over 22 years and have taught for more than 19 years. I received training from an MYB (Midori Yama Budokai) school. I have taught men, women, children, security staff, Air Force and Navy personnel and have also given private lessons to police officers and Marines. I have training in Aikido (Shinko Kaiten Aikido & Nihon Goshin Aikido)KarateJu-Jitsu, and Tae Kwon Do.
These Martial Arts have influenced me to form a more street practical version of Aikido, Gendai Aikido. I completely respect the traditional version of Aikido; without it I wouldn’t have the solid foundation I have today. Traditional Aikido is a beautiful Martial Art, but that’s exactly what it is an “art”. It has the potential to be so much more. Gendai Aikido is the potential unlocked.
