We are now officially affiliated with Aikido Shinryukan, based in New Zealand.
Nobuo Takase Shihan, is the Chief Instructor of Aikido Shinryukan and Technical Director for New Zealand Aikikai. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of this organisation and to be associated with Sensei. Many of us have trained with Andrew Williamson Sensei who is a senior member of Aikido Shinryukan.
This affiliation means we are officially linked to Hombu Dojo in Japan. This allows our students to participate in kyu and dan gradings that are internationally recognised.
Please look at the Aikido Shinryukan website for more information about Sensei, the organisation and grading syllabus.
We would like to thank Takase Shihan for accepting us into the organisation. We would also like to recognise the efforts of senior members of Brisbane Aikikai and Aikido Shinryukan in working towards this affiliation.
