Dr. Karasik brings many things with her to Shindai Dojo. Years of Aikido study has developed in Ola both beautiful movement and an intense physicality. We also see her integrity and pleasant nature as integral to Shindai as well. She is appreciated for so many attributes.
Ola has been practicing Aikido since 1997, training under many teachers nationally and internationally. Ola is inspired by great teachers like Daniel Herman Sensei, Frank Doran Sensei, Kayla Feder Sensei and Mary Heiny Sensei.
Ola was promoted to ASU Yondan in July of 2017 by the senior testing board of the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba.
