WELCOME TO BRISBANE AIKIKAI
- est. 1992 -
We are a traditional Aikido dojo and we welcome all beginners, new members and visitors from all other dojos. Brisbane Aikikai is a non-profit organisation, which was founded in 1992.
Aikido is a non-competitive, non-aggressive martial art developed by the late master, Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969), known as O Sensei. After mastering many martial arts he spent his later years developing Aikido as an art to defend oneself without inflicting unnecessary harm. Aikikai is the name of the world-wide organisation lead by the grandson of the founder of Aikido.
Our permanent dojo is conveniently located in central Brisbane and it is our privilege to be affiliated with Aikido Shinryukan (NZ) through the Chief Instructor of that organisation, Nobuo Takase Shihan (7th Dan). This affiliation links us directly to Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Tokyo, Japan, enabling our students to undertake gradings that are internationally recognised.
Our club has a great wealth of senior instructors (two 6th Dan, one 5th Dan, four 4th Dan and six 3rd Dan), who collectively hold many years of experience teaching the art in Australia, and other parts of the world.
