Takeda Yoshinobu Shihan 8th dan

Takeda Shihan began his study of Aikido in the early 1960 at the Honbu dojo in Tokyo under the late Yamaguchi Seigo Shihan, 9th dan himself a direct student of the Morehie Ueshiba (O'Sensei). He was soon to be recognised as one of Yamaguchi Sensei's most gifted students and was urged by his teacher to start his own dojo in the late 1960's

Takeda Shihan today is regarded as one of the greatest living masters of Aikido. His gentle and effortlessly flowing style of Aikido has attracted and inspired students from all over the world.

Our dojo in Adelaide keeps close contact with other dojo's in NSW and the ACT, with regular visits interstate by students from Adelaide to attend camps from visiting instructors both from Japan as well as from other countries.
We also hold camps in Adelaide with visiting instructors from Interstate.

Takeda Shihan is currently the director of Aikido Kenkyukai International and of the Shonan Aikido Renmei in Kamakura, Japan where he teaches. He is also a member of the Aikikai Board of Directors at Honbu Dojo in Tokyo

The human spirit
has the wonderous capacity
to extend a hundred million light years
beyond the limits of space.....

Let us try to purify our minds in practice.
If you can focus clearly
only for an instant
in that moment you will know yourself
with the mind of the universe.
