Aikido Kenshukai Dojo

Introduction to Aikido Kenshukai Dojo

 Aikido is a Way to realizing self-improvement (lit. self-completion) and one's dreams, with the goal of glorious victory (over the self that has held one back from realizing their goals).  It is a concrete method of training of mind (lit. heart) and body that can help one deal and cope with misuse of (political/social) power, (threat or use of) violence, fear, etc. in their everyday life. Furthermore, training will allow one to see into the truth of things, helping to free them from the power, violence, fear, etc. that has held them back from realizing their goals.


  The training methodology of Aikido adopted at our dojo allows anyone, regardless of age or sex/gender--even those with no confidence in their athleticism/stamina--to improve themselves through natural unforced movement.


 Please come and train to begin your journey to transform into a new you in a way that that is fun and enjoyable to both mind and body!


 People with no experience and those with experience seeking to further improve are all welcome to come and observe class. (Class observations are free)


 Our Aikido dojo is registered and 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 then devoted himself to learning only from Yamaguchi Seigo Shihan his principles and techniques.

 Our dojo's guiding ideology is to honor the principles and techniques, passed from Yamaguchi Seigo Shihan to Yamamoto Masujiro Shihan by inheriting them as a dojo 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.
