Hironobu Yamada Shihan 8th Dan Aikikai passes away

Posted 2017-10-17 05:27:00 by Michael Leung


With great regrets, Hong Kong Aikido Kan reports on the passing of Hironobu Yamada Shihan, 8th Dan, Aikikai, on 15th October, 2017. Yamada Shihan was the Founder of Hokuso Aikikai and Hokuso Aikikai Holland, and Technical Director of Hong Kong Aikido Kan. He was also a distinguished Shihan of the traditional martial art of Katori Shinto Ryu.

Yamada Shihan began his Aikido career in 1963 at the Jiyugaoka Dojo under Hiroshi Tada Shihan, 9th Dan Aikikai, and has studied under Tada Shihan for over 50 years. Yamada Shihan established his first Dojo, the "JAL Aikido Club" (Japan Airlines Aikido Club) at Narita Airport in 1976. He founded the Hokuso Aikikai un 1983 and was also Shihan of the Yachimata Aikido Association.
Yamada Shihan dedicated his life to the growth of Aikido both in Japan and internationally. Yamada Shihan taught extensively in Asia and was the Technical Director of Hong Kong Aikido Kan. In Europe, Hokuso Aikido Holland is an affiliate of Hokuso Aikikai and Yamada Shihan trained thousands of Aikido practitioners with the Russia Aikikai. He had close ties with Dojos in China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Peru and other countries.

Our deepest condolence to his family, loved ones, friends and students.
