Shodokan Aikido (昭道館 合気道)

Tomiki/Shodokan Aikido is a school of Aikido (Japanese Martial Art) founded by Tomiki Kenji that uses a more direct, formulaic method of teaching Aikido principles than that used in Aikikai Aikido schools.

Tomiki Kenji Shihan was a first generation student of Morihei Ueshiba (founder of Aikido) and of Jigaro Kano (founder of Judo). Tomiki Aikido is also known as Shodokan Aikido in Japan and as Sport Aikido due to the importance of competitive practice in it's curriculum.  Outside of Japan, the Aikido of Kenji Tomiki has gained much popularity in the USA, Russia and the UK. There is a keen and growing interest in this martial art and sport in many other countries including Ireland.
