2016 Spring Seminar with Harvey Konigsberg Sensei

In 1965, Harvey Konigsberg, a promising young boxer at the time, attended an Aikido demonstration by Yoshimitsu Yamada Sensei and Koichi Tohei Sensei. This soon compelled him to begin his training in Aikido, and by 1970 he was already teaching at the New York Aikikai, the Aikikai headquarters of the USA. One of the original students of Yamada Sensei, Konigsberg Sensei has been practicing Aikido for over 50 years.
