Instructors

All instructors at Shodokan Aikido Sydney have trained directly with Nariyama Shihan in Japan and Australia and have also undertaken the necessary study to obtain a Level 1 Coaching qualification.

As a group we are always keen to meet new students and hope that these students learn the enjoyment that Aikido brings.

If all you learn is to fall over safely then we have taught you the most important lesson of all!
