Shoheijiku Aikido - Suganuma Shihan

I've often been asked by visitors for information about Suganuma Sensei's training schedule, so I have created a web site with details about Shoheijuku Aikido in Fukuoka.

Visitors are most welcome, whether coming for a single class or if you are staying in Fukuoka for a while. Everyone is friendly and relaxed here and people are encouraged to train to their own capability.



"Morito Suganuma Shihan, Aikikai 8th Dan, is the founder and chief instructor of Shohei Juku Dojo in Fukuoka, Japan and its' 80 branch dojo. He was born in 1942 in Fukushima, Japan. He attended Juntendo University in 1962 and in the following year he attended Asia University. It was here that he was first introduced to Aikido and trained under Nobuyoshi Tamura Shihan. After graduation from university in 1967, he became the last Uchi-deshi (live-in student) of the Founder of Aikido, Morehei Ueshiba, until the latter's death in 1969."

"In 1970, Suganuma Sensei was sent by the late Doshu Kisshomaru Ueshiba to Fukuoka as the shihan in charge of the Kyushu district. The name "Shoheijuku" is derived from the middle character of the second Doshu's first name, Kisshomaru, and the last character of O'Sensei's first name, Morihei."

Re: Shoheijiku Aikido - Suganuma Shihan

Very nicely made. I've kept the link in my favorites. Seems like it'll be interesting to check once in a while. Suganuma sensei used to conduct seminars in Israel, until a few years ago. I was impressed by his way of doing aikido, of teaching (For example, he's the only shihan I've met that takes ukemi when he walks around and teaches the people attending his seminar) and the Q&A sessions he holds in the end of each day's practice.
