Hi Adrian:

Philippine Aikikai and Aikikai Philippines are traditional Aikido DOJO. The school started Aikido in the Philippines circa 1962. Founded by Galarpe now based in GUAM, the Kaicho's are Shihan Omar Camar 8th Dan and Sensei Tony Deprisa 4th Dan respectively. Phil. Aikikai is Quiapo and Aikikai Phil is in Makati.

If you are old enough to have watched old Filipino ACTION movies that features martial arts, you would have noticed someone in HAKAMA doing AIKIDO moves. That is OMAR CAMAR if there's two chances are the other one is Tony Deprisa.

Aside from your black belts being SHODAN, are all black belts referred to as SENSEI? Or they are called some other titles like SEMPAI?
