Place for To-Shin Do in NYC

I am working with long-time friend Leo Dokutoshi Pimentel to re-establish a dojo in NYC.

Interested in helping start a place for To-Shin Do in Manhattan?

Kick-off was a workshop 2-4 pm Sunday Aug 8 at a friend’s aikido dojo in Chelsea, covering secrets for ninja “unperceived action” in unarmed defense, and a mind & spirit focus “meditation on the move” exercise.

My whole family was there for the workshop – Reina & Matt, Marissa, An-shu Rumiko, and me. We look forward to being available to students more often as this new dojo grows and expands.

Write to or check the NYC-Quest web site for training information and directions.

    How about Ithaca, New York instead? please.

  2. Just heard you are coming to the city. It will be good to have you here.

    Ithica, Ny would be fantastic! I live about an hour away from there. I already study the curriculum from the DVDs and love it.
    Probably lots of interests and ventures for new students there as well.
    It would also further my dream of studying with Stephen Hayes or somenone under him.

  4. Good luck Leo. We’re doing a town fair that day so we can’t make it but let us know if we can help you with anything else.

    Ah, to far for me but I would like to start one here in southern VT. Mr. Mahoney it was good to see your post too, even though I am far away from your school too you were genuine to me through email and your website a true showing of character you and Mr. Hayes exude very well. I think I will purchase the earth DVDs soon and try and get something rolling here maybe i’ll use Mr. Mahoney’s weekly posts to help set a path on what I should be training on that week. Good luck Mr Pimentel in setting up a school again!

    I am interested in setting up something in the South east Florida area.

  7. Another vote from me for Ithaca, NY!!! 🙂
    I live close to Ithaca and would love to see one there!

  8. I live about 20 minutes from Ithaca, NY and would also love to see one here. (And occasional visits from Stephen also)

  9. Think I see some familiar faces from the old NYC days….

    Is that big Hugh in the back row ?!

    I dont know who could deny to say yes to this great family.
    I put this beautiful picture on my desktop to remind me every day where I belong and what I still have to do…

    sounds good for our NYC islands

  12. I think the north west needs some attention. Portland, OR would be an excellent choice.

    You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really one thing that I feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I am looking ahead to your next put up, I?ll try to get the grasp of it!
