Shinbukan Aikido?

Hey all,

I recently went to a Dojo in Amsterdam and watched a Aikido lesson with what is called Shinbukan Aikido?

Has anyone done this or does any one know of this styles?

What is it like and so on...

Thanks
Tiyler

Re: Shinbukan Aikido?

I googled it and it appears to be the name of an organization or group of dojos.

Re: Shinbukan Aikido?

Hello there Tiyler. Judging from the website there, it looks a very good organisation. The training methodology seems to be grounded in pre war aiki focusing on strong basic techniques, moving towards a more flowing application gradually over time. I believe in the UK here there is an affiliated dojo to the Shinkendo organisation and I hope to pay it a visit at some point in the future.

All the best

Re: Shinbukan Aikido?

That is Toshishiro Obata Sensei's organization and his own style which he created. I believe he is still located in the LA area in the states.

You movie goers out there might recogioze him from any number of moveis which feature Japanes bad guys. My favorite are his appearences as the assistant bad guy in the ninja turtles movies although he was in Demolition Man, Rising Sun, Black Rain and others.

He was a direct student of Shioda Sensei in the Yoshinkan style and also did tameshigiri under the late Nakamura Sensei in the Toyama Ryu. He featured in the production of the videos, Samurai Aikijutsu and Crimson Steel.

He created his own style, Shinkendo, whihc he continues to oversee.

Re: Shinbukan Aikido?

Shinkendo is the organization of Obato Toshishiro Shihan. He was a 7th or 8th dan in the Yoshinkan, and then split off to form his own organization. It concentrates on pre-war aikibudo, and a gendai style of swordmenship based on his experience with Toyama ryu, test cutting, and other sword related arts. Nathan Scott is one of his senior students, and there is a ton of info on the style on www.e-budo.com. There is also a spotlight on budo conversation with Obato Shihan on the site. Good stuff, and good folks. Check it out...

Re: Shinbukan Aikido?

Hey All,

I took the bull by the horns last night and paid the dojo a visit.
The sensei Brent was very warm and welcoming indeed and his students all where super nice to me.
Every thing was very organised and super done!
I have actually now quit my old dojo and have sighed up to be his student now as his discipline and dojo etiquette was second to none!
The style is very flowing and very different to the aikikai style I am used to.
A great style and a good teacher!

Re: Shinbukan Aikido?

I happen to be friends with a couple of Shinkendo instructors. They are all wonderful people and the art is very interesting. I know that there are a couple of schools in the Midwest USA if anyone is interested in learning more.

Re: Shinbukan Aikido?

I have had the pleasure of meeting a fair amount of Obata Kaiso's students who teach and study his style of swordsmenship and aikido. A top notch organization, and I'm not just saying that because I am a student.

Re: Shinbukan Aikido?

Hey All,

Just a little update..
I have now changed over Dojo's and directly train under Brent Hire Sensei! The dojo is quite small but very well disciplined and all work together as a unit.
The training is sometimes much harder and more physical than my old frame is used to but I find it very pleasing and a good atmosphere to train in.

Shinkendo is a great style to do.
