Nadine Edwards, Shodan

At testing while in Northern Virginia

Nadine began her study of the art in 2006 at Aikido Kyoto.  She continued her studies at Northern Virginia Aikikai on her return to the USA.  A visitor to Blacksburg and to Kodokan Aikido at Virginia Tech at various times, Nadine joined the dojo after settling in the area; she was promoted to the rank of Shodan (black belt, first degree) in 2016. 

My various instructors and mentors have impressed upon me that Aikido is a conversation. What sort of conversation would we have? I look forward to meeting you on the mat.”
