Hayashi Sensei Joins the SMAA

Cynthia Hayashi Sensei recently joined the SMAA, after teaching aikido at our seminar in Utah. She is a direct student of the famed Saito Morihiro Sensei, himself a senior student of the founder of aikido. Hayashi Sensei has received a sixth-degree black belt in aikido from the Aikikai World HQ in Tokyo.

She is one of the highest ranking female aikido teachers in the world. The SMAA is honored to have her as a member.
