Gleason Sensei studied in Japan under Seigo Yamaguchi Sensei from 1969 through 1980, also taking classes from Saotome Shihan. In 1980 he returned to America to promote Aikido here, teaching in association with the ASU. Gleason Sensei has raised many high ranking students and there are five dojos across the United States under the auspices of ASU that are founded by his students.
Our goal with this GoFundMe is first, to pay current debts with enough of a buffer so that we can focus on building membership; second, to put marketing activities in place to raise membership to the point where we can be self-sustaining; and third to build up our kids program as an additional source of stability and augmentation to our program.
Our GoFundMe goal of $18,000 is enough to cover these initiatives and, we think, put us on a sound financial footing.
