Tristan shares the foundation of his aikido which is oriented to practical self-defense.

The ability to defend yourself is not something to graduate into many years in the future. The ability to defend yourself might save your life, or protect you from injury. It is the bedrock of martial arts training.

In this course he teaches the fundamentals all new students learn, and includes the entire content of the first belt test.


Tristan started training Aikido in 2004 and founded Spirit Aikido in 2011. A full contact competitor for more than 25 years, he brings practical experience with live opponents and coaching fighters into his Aikido training. He has worked on many diverse projects as an entrepreneur, inventor, author, author, analyst, mediator, and artist.
