In Memory of Manny and Mike
Manny (Emmanuel Santos) was a senpai and became Shodan (Black belt) in his seventies and helped preparing our new students in Aikido.
We miss him and keep his great and kind spirit with us. Mike (Michael Wilfong) was a early on student of the dojo and became Shodan (Black belt) under the guidance of our Chief Instructor Dave. We lost Mike too young and we will continue to honor his spirit on the mat.
