It is the strongest self-defense technique and the arrest technique of the Japanese police. As a preparatory exercise, Japanese yoga “Shinko method” is a healthy exercise consisting of only 4 movements.
The relationship between Hamamatsu and Aikido
Jigoro Kano, the founder of Kodokan Judo, and Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido. The legendary martial artist Satoshi Mochizuki studied directly with these two people. Born in Shizuoka City in 1907, Mochizuki opens Dojokan in 1931. There are only 4 brothers in the world who have received a license from Mochizuki, who became a master of martial arts. One of them is Tadashi Sugiyama, President of Hamamatsu City Aikido Association.
This experience will be taught directly by Dr. Sugiyama, the legitimate successor of Aikido.
