Shodokan Musashino | Shodokan Aikido International Network


Shodokan Musashino

Shodokan Musashino was established in 2000 under Japan Aikido Association (JAA) as well as Shodokan Aikido International Network and has been belonged to Shodokan Aikido Federation and East Japan Aikido Kyogi Federation since 2012.

Aikido is a modern Japanese Martial Art developed by Morihei Ueshiba from ancient Jujutsu styles. Shodokan Aikido is a style founded by Kenji Tomiki, one of his earliest students. It incorporates both formal paired kata training and "freestyle" randori.

Randori is important since it teaches us to apply and counter techniques under difficult circumstances. Unlike Judo randori, which includes grappling and throwing techniques, Shodokan randori uses striking and joint techniques.

If you would like to come to Tokyo to practice Shodokan Aikido, please contact us. We will welcome you at any time!
Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments you have!

About Us - Top

Shodokan Musashino was founded by Ryuichi Omori Sensei in May, 2000. Conveniently located close to Kichijoji Station (JR line, Keio Inokashira line) in Musashino city, Tokyo, we specialize mainly in the guidance of "kata" and "randori". We find that each balances the other well.
We have had excellent results in many of international and domestic tournaments. Of course, they've been both Randori and Kata!

The head instructor is Ryuichi Omori Sensei (7th Dan).
The assistant instructor is Kiyoe Omori Sensei (4th Dan).

Ryuichi Omori Sensei's Bio
Ryuichi Omori Sensei was born in Tokyo. He attended Kokushikan University and became a member of the aikido club. It was here that he had a fateful encounter with Tetsuro Nariyama Shihan that determined his future.

In his fourth year of university, he was selected to be the captain of the club.

After graduation, he entered a graduate school of Sports Systems to research Aikido in a more scientific manner.

However, because he wanted a higher level of training, he enrolled in the Shodokan Honbu Dojo of Tetsuro Nariyama Shihan in Osaka to master his technique.

He finished the training of four years there and went back to Tokyo to establish his own dojo, Shodokan Musashino in 2000.
