What is a cleft lip and
A cleft is an opening in the lip,

the bones of the upper jaw

cleft lip, a cleft palate or both.

He continued this training under O'Sensei until the master's demise in 1969, at which time he automatically continued his learning under O'Sensei's chief disciple, his own father, Morihiro Saito, 9th dan.

Based from my inquiry and observation of the classes before joining, as well as my first-hand experience with Sensei Stephanie Yap and the sempai (higher belters), I can attest that they really know their craft. Being in aikido class for me is a therapy. It de-stresses and helps me cope with depression caused by the struggles of my personal life and my stressful work. -Van V - Auditor
