Jason Rudolph Sensei, Yondan (4th degree black belt)

What I appreciate about Aikido is the ability to generate smooth, fluid, and dynamic power. In addition, it is an art that lends itself to the incorporation of others arts if one is so inclined. Moreover, Aikido is an art allows for more options in a self-defense situation. Finally, Aikido has many metaphorical uses off the mat such as conflict resolution and generating inner peace. These alternative applications were a focus of my graduate program as one of my professors was also a student of this dojo before his passing.

I took my Shodan examination at Aikido of Madison in early 2002, my Nidan examination was held in Chicago in 2006 and my Sandan examination was in Nashville in 2012. I was promoted to the rank of Yondan in 2019. I also hold the rank of Shodan in Tae Kwon Do/American kickboxing and have incorporated aspects of jujitsu, Kali and Judo into my ongoing training as well.
