 Our Aikido dojo is officially accredited by the Aikikai Foundation.

 We give utmost importance to making the teachings of the Founder fundamental to our practice; paying due respect to the successive generations of Aikido Doshu, and contributing to the development of Aikido. Our dojo was established in 1969 by Yamamoto Masujiro Shihan (deceased) with the help of Yamaguchi Seigo Shihan (deceased). Yamamoto Masujiro Shihan devoted himself to learning from Yamaguchi Seigo Shihan his principles and techniques over the course of a couple decades.

 Our dojo's guiding ideology is to honor the principles and techniques, passed from Yamaguchi Seigo Shihan to Yamamoto Masujiro Shihan, as part of our dojo's tradition and carrying on those principles and techniques on in our Aikido practice and training.
 Note: Yamaguchi Seigo Shihan received instruction as an uchi-deshi (live-in student) of Aikido Founder Ueshiba Morihei, and devoted his life to teaching Aikido at Aikido Hombu Dojo. He also went abroad and taught Aikido (seminars) to many practitioners outside Japan.
