About Shodokan Aikido Club Sydney

Shodokan Aikido in Sydney started life as the NSW Tomiki Aikido Club in the Sydney suburb of Willoughby NSW in the late 1970's.

In the 1980’s a satellite club was formed by several students at the North Ryde RSL Youth Club, where it continues today as the Sydney Shodokan Aikido.

Ray Mazzone Sensei started training in Aikido at the North Ryde Dojo in 1986 and in 1992 became its head instructor, a position he held for 18 years until his untimely passing in 2010.
