Teaching Style

“Even with mastery, everyone is always a student. I keep that in mind while teaching. I also hold the philosophy that we were all beginners at one point.

I try to build good relationships with my students so I can support them while they learn and grow. I love to collaborate and find ways to help all my students improve their lives through Aikido.”

- Sensei Zach Trent
