Aikido of South Florida donating
to Operation Smile

Stephanie Yap, Chief Instructor at Aikido of South Florida, will be instructing a seminar in Viña del Mar, CHILE May 16 & 17th, 2015 and will be donating a portion of her fees for one child to receive the operation that will change their life - FOREVER. Together we can make a difference!

Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe.

What is a cleft lip and cleft palate?

A cleft is an opening in the lip, the roof of the mouth or the soft tissue in the back of the mouth. A cleft lip may be accompanied by an opening in the bones of the upper jaw and/or the upper gum.

A cleft palate occurs when the two sides of a palate do not join together, resulting in an opening in the roof of the mouth. A cleft lip and palate can occur on one side or both sides. A child can suffer from a cleft lip, a cleft palate or both.

Hollywood Outreach Center Clothes Drive 2015

I would like to thank all the members of Aikido of South Florida for their generous donations to the Hollywood Crisis Center for the homeless. To no great surprise, and with full confidence, we all came together and exceeded our goals and proved once again the power through unity in our dojo, friends and family.

Hitohira Saito Sensei, began his Aikido education at the tender age of seven under the direct tutelage of the Founder, Morihei Ueshiba. 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.

I am a Defensive Tactics Instructor for the Miami Dade College School of Justice (law enforcement academy). I have trained hundreds of police and correctional officers in self defense. I operate in an environment, where lack of focus and discipline can be life threatening. Aikido has helped me to maintain my composure in tense and unpredictable situations.
