Julian Shay started Aikido as a student of Sonoma State University in the Spring of 2002. To supplement the Kinesiology class there, he chartered an Aikido sports club and led a number of students to dan ranks while training on campus with Kennedy Sensei. He was also (uchi deshi) a live-in student near campus and trained at Dennis Tatoian Senseiís dojo in Rohnert Park, CA. He currently teaches Kinesiology 101:Aikido at the University and remains committed to preserving the techniques of the founder as taught by his loyal servant Morihiro Saito Shihan through a partnership with the University and Traditional Aikido of Sonoma County.
