Steve SouchAikido Bio of Steve Souch (5th dan)

I was Vincent Sumpter's first student when he returned from Japan in 1977 after a three year posting with the RAF. While in Tokyo, Vince studied aikido and attained his 1st Dan black belt from Hombu Dojo, the martial art's world headquarters. I have been training ever since, attaining black belt in 1988. Teaching aikido for more than twenty-five years now, I reached the rank of 5th Dan in 2010.
