Heirenkan dojo

The Heirenkan dojo was opened in 2012 with the aim of promoting traditional Yoshinkan Aikido. The school and instructor are internationally registered with the Aikido Yoshinkai Foundation (AYF) in Takadanobaba, Japan. Our advisor is Sensei Steven Miranda, 6th Dan, Yoshinkan Sacramento

Aikibudo

As a style of aikido, Yoshinkan is more akin to the pre-war aikibudo techniques taught by Morihei Ueshiba, and therefore also generally closer to aikijujutsu than those styles of aikido developed after the war. The unusual emphasis placed on correct form prior to practicing correct flow and timing further contributes to its image as a "hard" style. Gozo Shioda created a structured method in which beginning students would learn the foundation techniques. Techniques are made up of elements such as the initiating attack, the applicable control and whether it is a pin or throw. They are further divided into two groups called ichi(first) and ni(second) techniques. Ichi techniques have a feeling of the energy moving away from shite, often with uke, pulling or blocking a strike. Ni techniques have a feeling of the energy coming towards shite. In an ichi technique, the Yoshinkan practitioner goes with the pull; and for a ni technique he diverts or pivots away from the push. The current method of breaking the techniques into steps and the kihon dosa were developed in order to facilitate teaching beginners in a group. Yoshinkan Aikido has some 150 kihon waza ("basic techniques"), which are practised repeatedly. Proficiency in these enable the student to master the remaining ones, which total some 3000 overall. The syllabus contains no weapons forms, although they are practised as an adjunct to the open hand techniques. Like many styles of aikido, Yoshinkan eschews competition; instead, it emphasizes self defence applications. Yoshinkan aikido is one of the martial arts that has been taught to the Tokyo police.

The art of Aikido Yoshinkan was originally founded by Shioda Gozo Kancho in 1955. It is often referred to as the "hard" style of Aikido because the training methods are a result of the grueling period that Shioda spent as a student ofMorihei Ueshiba before the war. The Yoshinkan style is currently the second largest aikido organization worldwide.
