The Art of Peace is to fulfill that which is lacking.
In August of 2005 the Lloyd building at Mansfield and Monroe in Spokane burned, gutting apartments and commercial spaces alike. Over the last 2 years the building’s owner, Mark Agee of Ten Talents Inc. has directed a rebirth. Through his labor along with Jeremy Decker and a crew of many the Lloyd building is now very much alive, giving a home to many, including the Aiki Institute of Spokane and Roshinkan Aikido dojo.
The Lloyd is back and better than ever. The work done on the building has created comfortable, affordable housing, along with inviting commercial space on the historically important Monroe street corridor. Creating a healthy community begins by giving to the community. This is very evident in the rebirth of the Lloyd. In this day of high end condos Mark Agee has filled a need by putting the Lloyd to use in a way benefiting many in the community. Just like many who were in need of a home and found it here at the Lloyd, the Aiki Institute of Spokane was in need of a home. We have found it here at the Lloyd and are very pleased to be a part of this community. We look forward to many years of growth, giving, and learning here in our new home. The spirit of Aiki is alive and well.
