Justin Coletti Sensei, a licensed acupuncturist and dedicated aikido practitioner, has immersed himself in the disciplines of aikido, iaido (Japanese sword drawing), Misogi, and Zen meditation since 2005, training at Brooklyn Aikikai under the instruction of R. Savoca Sensei. With a current rank of yondan (fourth-degree black belt) awarded by the Birankai North America Aikido Federation, Justin's expertise is deeply rooted in a lineage that traces back to the founder of aikido.
What sets Justin's journey apart in his close connection to practice, is that he also lives at the dojo on the farm. This dynamic immersion allows him to impart not only technical proficiency but also a profound understanding of the art's essence in daily living. Under the tutelage of Savoca Sensei, and then Chiba Sensei, a direct student of the founder, M. Ueshiba, Justin hones his craft with an authenticity that resonates.
A proud native of Troy, NY, Justin is dedicated to bringing the rich traditions of aikido and acupuncture back to his hometown, enriching the lives of those who seek their transformative power.
