Linda Holiday Sensei (Rokudan)
Executive Director and Chief Instructor,
Aikido of Santa Cruz
Linda Holiday began her study of Aikido in 1970 as a first year student at the University of California, Santa Cruz, under Robert Frager Sensei and Frank Doran Sensei. This was during the first years of Aikido in America At that time the Aikido group in Santa Cruz was one of only four dojos in northern California. In 1972 Linda took a leave of absence from her university studies in art and music, in order to focus on Aikido. In 1973 she journeyed to Japan with fellow Aikidoist Richard Revoir. After they trained at Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Tokyo, Mary Heiny introduced them to the Kumano Juku Dojo in Shingu, Wakayama Prefecture, which was headed by Michio Hikitsuchi Sensei, 10th dan. Linda, Richard Revoir, and Jack Wada (now chief instructor of Aikido of San Jose) then moved from Tokyo to Shingu and became the first foreign Aikido students to live there and train intensively at the Kumano Juku Dojo. That first year of shugyo (intensive training) in Japan was transformative for Linda. She was inspired to dedicate her life to the martial art and spiritual discipline of Aikido.
