Aikido Dojo Plzeň
|A I K I D O|
Since 1995 we follow instruction of late Nishio Shoji sensei and his students Tanaka Kouichi and Stefan Stenudd. We are proud to cooperate with John Stevens sensei, professor of buddhism and top student of Shirata Rinjiro. We also cooperate with Henrik Englekes from Sweden and Kai Koskinen from Finland - both very skilled teachers, who practiced for Nishio sensei, but also have rich experience with other martial arts. Since Nishio sensei was Aikikai shihan, we do not feel any reason to exclude ourselves out of Aikikai and so with highest respect we have been regularly visiting seminars with Tamura Nobuyoshi, Yamada Yoshimitsu, Endo Seishiro or Ulf Evenas.
