We are a newly formed group of Aikido students offering an introductory course in Aikido principles and movement at the Montclair Cooperative School, in Montclair, NJ. We trace our lineage to Aikido Hombu Dojo, the world headquarters of the founder's organization, through Aikido Centers, a seven dojo group based in East Hanover, NJ, under the leadership of Greg O'Connor Sensei, 7th Dan. O'Connor Sensei has been offering instruction in New Jersey for over 30 years and is is the author of two highly regarded books on the art.

He is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in several Northern New Jersey nursing homes as well as in private practice and holds multiple black belt certifications from Aikido World Headquarters, Aikikai Foundation and Aikido Centers.
