Rupert teaches in Seoul but I don't think he reads Aikiweb. I suggest you post the same question on the Aikido Journal forums.

Re: Looking for Aikido's Dojo at Seul,Corea

The Korea Aikido Federation is headed by Yoon, Dae-Hyun sensei, 4th dan Aikikai, with the headquarters right near the Shinchon line 2 subway station. Yoon sensei's teacher is Yasuo Kobayashi shihan 8th dan Aikikai.

Head on over to www.aikido.co.kr and you'll find directions on how to get there. There are also more dojos scattered around Seoul, if Shinchon isn't convenient for you - as Peter mentioned, Rupert Atkinson sensei teaches at Pyongchon dojo, which might be more convenient if you live in the southern part of Seoul. You can find directions or contact numbers on the above webpage.

Hope this helps!

Gyun Choo Ssi,

Here's Rupert Sensei's webpage and from there can get directions as well.

I once trained at the dojo in Chongno-3-ga which i believe is the one they referred to as the Korean Aikikai Hombu dojo. There is also a dojo within the American military base in Yongsan. Again, Rupert Sensei's webpage can give you more information.

The Jong No Dojo is no longer! Youn Sensei moved the Headquaters to Shinchon in 2003 (?). It is a better location near 4 universities.

Sung Gyun Cho,

Shinchon is the best place for you to start even if you can't practice there regularly, you should go there to get the definitive locations of the other Aikido dojos. There are a few "posers" here in Korea....
