Our Club

admin @ 11:44 am

Shodokan Aikido  was developed by Tomiki Shihan and his top students. This development continues at Shodokan Clubs around the world under the guidance of Nariyama Shihan. The techniquies are based on many of the principals of kendo including distance and centre line defence, and the balance breaking and training exercises of Judo. Shodokan Aikido is unique in the Aikido world as it incorporates training against a non-cooperative opponent with the aim of improving the application of the techniques. This improvement can be achieved through an understanding of what makes an effective technique learnt through practices called tsukuri.
