Nick passed away on June 29th 2017 after a brief illness. We miss him, we mourn him, we'll never forget him. He was a remarkable teacher and an extraordinary human being. Our deepest sympathies go out to his friends and family.
Nick Scoggin, 6th degree Black Belt, began Aikido training in 1960. He spent ten years training in Japan and over the years, trained in Judo, Jujitsu, Karate, and other forms of martial arts. In addition, Nick performed both armed and unarmed stage combat, and stunt choreography.
Nick was a professional actor with experience in film, stage, television and commercials and worked with many Hollywood stars. He was interested in the application of Aikido within creative endeavors and leveraged it to enhance and bring light to all areas of expression.
His life, presence and contributions were beautifully summed up in a heartfelt eulogy by his dear friend, Jamie Lamka
