The Yoshinkan 'House for Cultivating the Spirit' was founded after World War Two. This style of aikido is occasionally called the hard style because the training methods are a product of the gruelling period Soke Shioda spent as a student of Ueshiba.
Yoshinkan Aikido has some 150 basic techniques which are practiced repeatedly; these enable the student to master the remaining ones, which total some 3000 overall.

TOP NOTCH: I've been fortunate enough to have visited this school twice since 2009. The instructor and students are top notch. I highly recommend this school to anyone wanting to learn aikido in a tradition way, yet in a family oriented atmosphere. Both the youth and adult programs are great. Great dojo!
My son joined this club and I was at first a little worried as it seemed a lot for him to take in, but with Jay's patience and humour he learned fast. It has made a great difference to him as he was a very shy boy who got bullied a little, he is now so much more confident and outgoing! I would recommend this club to any parent.
