"After watching my 5 year old for several classes I was blown away by the discipline that Sensei instills in
the children.  To go from being wild and raucous before class to complete quiet and reverence with a clap
of the hand is awe inspiring.  I love Sensei's approach with the children.  He is fun and nurturing, always
focusing on the short term achievements towards the long term goal.  Out of all the activities my daughter
is involved with, this is by far her favorite!"  Maria

"I started Aikido just before my 57th birthday.  It does not encourage competition or aggression; it is a
peaceful, harmonious martial art. I chose River City Aikido because Sensei Brian Hill exemplifies this
philosophy.  This is a great group to train with; Sensei and everyone in class is so very supportive. My self-
confidence and flexibility are improving, my aches and pains are disappearing. I have more energy than I’
ve had in years.  I am actually beginning to feel younger!"  Mary

"Sensei Hill is the Mary Poppins of martial arts. He creates an environment of respect in which the
children want to succeed and advance.   Sensei teaches his students self control and discipline... All
while having fun." Amanda

"There is a deep and powerful philosophy underlying aikido: to give life, to protect your attacker from harm,
to defend yourself ethically and model an effective and moral option for conflict resolution. Aikido training
improves your attitude, as well as your physical well being, and it is highly transferabl in many aspects of
my daily life. I am grateful for Brian’s sensitive instruction, and for the guidance of the other students.  We
also have a lot of fun parties. That’s not on the website."  Tracy
