    Thank you very much for posting these pictures. I trained at the Samurai Dojo from 1964-1967 and learned a tremendous amount from Sensei Art McConnell, as well as from all of the other tremendous instructors at the Samurai.

    I want to thank you for the great web site. I was a student of Sensei Art McConnell when he had the school in Glen Cove back in 1972. He taught me a lot about keeping a balance in my life. I still have his “The Iron Bridge” which I refer to now and again!
