Aikido of Hattiesburg is an aikido club at the University of Southern Mississippi, in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. A United States Aikido Federation (“USAF”) member dojo. Aikido of Hattiesburg was formed in 2006 under the umbrella of Aikido of New Orleans and the two dojos continue to have a close relationship. The dojo is led by Adrian Castillo, 1st dan. He is assisted by Danillo Mezzadri. They are supervised by Larry Ozenberger, 3rd dan, Fukushidoin.
The USAF is under the direction of Yoshimitsu Yamada, 8th dan, Shihan. Through the USAF, we follow Moriteru Ueshiba, Aikido Doshu, and are connected with Aikido World Headquarters (Hombu Dojo), in Tokyo, Japan.
If you have any questions about our club or Aikido in general please feel free to come and watch a class. Directions to the facility can be found here. We can also be reached by email: email@example.com
