Aikido of Arlington, M-TH 7-8:30 PM & Sat 9-10:30 AM

Aikido of Arlington, led by Yvonne Thelwell sensei (5th dan), has been practicing aikido in the Iwama-ryu tradition since its founding by Donny Lyon sensei (4th dan) in 1989. Both Lyon sensei and Thelwell sensei spent time studying as uchi-deshi under Morihiro Saito sensei in Iwama, Japan. After Lyon sensei's passing in 1996, Thelwell sensei—being a sempai at the dojo—stepped in as dojo-cho and chief instructor.
