Mustard Sensei is one of the leading exponents of Aikido in the world today having spent 10 years in Japan. In 1991 Mustard Sensei was appointed Itaku Shidoin by Shioda Kancho and remained the Chief Foreign Instructor at the Yoshinkan Hombu Dojo until he moved back to Canada in 1995

This is a great opportunity to train with one of the best aikidoka in the world today, so don’t miss out!

Senta Yamada seminar canceled.

Due to Mr Yamada being in poor health at present and unable to travel to the UK, the seminar at the Shoshinkan Dojo with him will not be taking place.

We all wish Yamada San a speedy recovery.
