Mountain Coast Aikikai
Birankai Canada and Mountain Coast Aikikai are pleased to host Fleshler Shihan in Vancouver for this special seminar.
Aki Fleshler began his Aikido training under Mitsunari Kanai Sensei of New England Aikikai in 1972. After several years he moved to Santa Fe, NM to study Aikido, Kotodama Principle, and Natural Medicine under Sensei Masahilo Nakazono and his son Sensei Katsuharu Nakazono. On Nakazono Sensei’s retirement in 1983, Fleshler Sensei began his formal affiliation with T K Chiba Sensei, Shihan and the United States Aikido Federation-Western Region (USAF-WR).
He is a founding member of Southwestern Aikikai in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM, and moved to Portland, OR in 1989 to establish Multnomah Aikikai, where he has served as both Chief Instructor and Technical Director.
Fleshler Sensei has served nationally on the Advisory Board (USAF-WR), Examining Committee (Birankai), and Scholarship Committee (Birankai). He is member of the Senior Council/Shihankai and chairs the Ethics Committee of Birankai North America.
