Heart of San Francisco Aikido :: Instructors [cached]

Kenneth Baker, 3rd dan

"Not long after beginning to practice, I heard aikido described in terms that chimed with what I had initially been looking for - 'exercise with meaning.' Kenneth Baker That meaning has been unfolding in my experience on and off the mat ever since. Introduced to aikido by a dancer/performance artist friend, Kenneth has practiced since 1978 (with a six-year hiatus in the '80s), including sustained training with senseis John Saviano, David O'Neill, and Penny Sablove.
Kenneth has taught aikido in San Franciso for more than 15 years, at Aikido In and Heart of San Francisco Aikido. He offered a for-credit course, "Aikido as a Critical Path," at California College of the Arts from 1999 through 2005. Art critic for The San Francisco Chronicle since 1985, Kenneth has also published two books on 20th century art.
