Yes, Ron. I find it interesting that Shioda sensei chose the name "yo-shin-kan". The "yo" is the same as in "yoseikan," meaning "to cultivate." But the "shin" is the same as in "shinto"--meaning "kami" or "god." So "yoshinkan" can be read as "the place to cultivate god (or "the gods")".

For what that's worth.

Best wishes.

Dave,

It's incorrect, Yo Shin Kan means house or hall of cultivate spirit not gods. It's seishin not kami as you said about. "Shin" has other varation and other than religious, such as you are strong spirit, tired or sleepy. It's other than religous of "shin character", not "reikon".
