Morihei Ueshiba and Gozo Shioda’s ideal: an aikido that anyone can do regardless of age or sex

“Aikido is something anyone can do –men, women, young or old” Morihei Ueshiba and Gozo Shioda.

“However, when I started practicing all I saw was strong men; only 10% of the practitioners were women” remembers Shioda’s grandson, Shioda Masahiro sensei.

Masahiro’s place of practice, Yoshinkan is also famous for being used by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department for the training of its riot squad.

When he became independent and started teaching in various facilities, including nursing homes he embarked on a journey of discovering and perfecting “techniques that would last 100 years” as per the wishes of the founder of aikido and his extraordinary student.

In this video, the fruit of this journey, he explains various “aikido tips that will help even a weak person to take down a strong one” in easy-to-understand words and movements.

His three-step structure of “how to move”, “take down tips” and “tips on how to advance” will benefit beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

A video for all of you who:

・ are interested in aikido, but are concerned because of your age or physical strength
・ are interested in aikido, but are concerned because you are a woman
・ want to know how to do aikido and martial arts without relying on your strength and build
