Dr. Bobbert began Aikido at 62 after retiring from his career as a TV producer/director at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, KY

At 70 he passed his Nidan Black Belt test (Second Degree).  The following is part of that test. For Nidan (Second Degree) Black Belt test one should use simple strong techniques that put the opponent down with as little effort as possible.
