Aikido Kenkyukai International
Our aim is to instil Quality with Integrity into the character of all
idea for Fudoshin dojo within the Aikido Kenkyukai International
collaboration network is a simple one not unlike that of other
individuals who believe in the responsibility of teaching and honestly
passing on their inner experience, to reflect on their students an
inspirational transmission of knowledge.
inner purpose to pass on my own interpretation of Aikido was set in
direct consequence to a basic feeling from an evolved intuitive
expression presented out from the Mind of Takeda Yoshinobu
shihan. His open free approach to studying Aikido has consequently
guided me to venture and explore the many path ways of opportunity
available in forming individual relationships with those best
suited to benefit and help illuminate my own path, for self
benefit and benefit to others.
Each has his own road to travel and each legitimate in
doing so alone or together with the helpful nature of kindred hearts
and spirits. It is ones responsebility not to cause injury to
another whose chosen pathway proceeds gently and compassionatly
along the way to discovering how to read and arrive at
understanding how one perceives answers to inner questions.
"The person with abundant goodness to which people aspire and the
generous soul who offers his generosity and goodness freely is the
highest form of human being. On the other hand the person or people who
deprive an individual or others by interfering with or denying
the legitimacy of their being can be regarded as to hinder growth
and consiquently need to be avoided for a time".
our A.K.I. Collaboration there are a good number of fine inspirational
people. It is ones great good fortune when a kindred link is formed and
carried on over the years.
I found a generous and very helpful kindred spirit in the friendship with Takeda Satoshi sensei pictured
above. Some time ago we linked our dojo and formed a sister dojo
relationship, to help support one another, in our aim to assist
in passing on the beauty of Aikido to all who are open to receive
our Transmission, through a mutual network link with Takeda Yoshinobu shihan and
his Aikido Networks in accord with the world Aikido Foundation.
Takeda Satoshi sensei has a generous heart and open manner. He is
always willing to share his experience of Aikido and Budo Mind.
Takeda Satoshi sensei's approach to training is as he lives his
daily life, dynamic, fluid, alive and precise, with an honest real
technique, an ability to transmit practical knowledge with sincerity
and a human ability to communicate with an approachable manner. He is a
fine example of an honorable thoughtful teacher in his own right ,who
will never compromise his loyalty and his willingness to help and support his own teachers / teacher,.( Takeda Yoshinobu shihan ) I find him to be an impressive human being and complimentary to the Fudoshin ethos.
believe all Aikido dojo are to develope an open
expansiveness throughout the world capabile of connecting to
varied aspects of human and non human life conveyed and presented
in studying and understanding the Aiki phrase adopted as our ideal.
Equalibrium and cooperation are big points in understanding Aiki Heart
All of us as developing members are hopefully feeling a greater
sense of freedom and non interference. All dojo need to
become more aware of this point. Fudoshin dojo policy is to
put this point accross.To openly respect and support the
freedom that is required by individuals to find their own path free of
persecution in order to guide others to freely find their own
path. I believe through a sense of promoting freedom of
compassionate expression and positive guidance people can find a
true and fulfilled path bright enough to illuminate their way to
happiness and honest self expression.
I will always be very grateful to the forces in the Great
Universe for linking inspiring true individuals like Takeda
Yoshinobu shihan and Takeda Satoshi sensei who influence and help
guide along the Path.
In addition to all the above, I hope to be able to continue to help and
expand our human links and Aiki dream and continue to introduce
more and more people to our world.
