Ruth Kedar, 4th Dan

Ruth Kedar began studying Aikido in 1992 under Frank Doran Shihan at Aikido West in Redwood City, California and at Stanford University. During that time she also trained with her children in the Aikido West Kids program. Ruth received her shodan in 1999, her nidan in 2003 and was promoted to the rank of sandan in 2008.

She has a deep respect for the art and is both inspired and humbled by those who study it. Ruth hopes one day to be able to practice Aikido both on and off the mat.  In addition to Aikido, Ruth has studied Yoga and Tai-Chi.

Ruth believes that Aikido is the perfect backdrop for people of all ages and from all walks of life to meet and connect in a fun and safe environment and she invites you to come and join her in the Saturday morning class.
