Paul Neuman, Chief Instructor

From Vancouver, British Columbia, Paul began his Aikido training in Vancouver under Yukio Kawahara Sensei (Chief Instructor of the Canadian Aikido Federation) in 1988. He moved to Tokyo in 1994 to continue his training at the Aikido World Headquarters. In January of 2011 he received promotion to 5th Dan by Seijuro Masuda Sensei of the Aikido World Headquarters.

We are very fortunate to have a number of skilled practitioners who volunteer their time to help us out while building hours towards their next round of testing. Also, some of our more senior students make themselves available when needed to assist with the younger kids’ classes. All of them are an integral part of keeping Pacific Aikido going strong with the best possible instruction we can provide.
