Yoshinkan Aikido

Please note, we are in no way connected to the Yoshinkan Aikido organisation, and we do not practice Aikido in our Dojo.

While the name 'Yoshinkan' appears the same when using the English alphabet, when written in Japanese it is quite different.

Gozo Shioda's Yoshinkan Aikido Federation use the kanji 養神館 translated roughly as Hall of Spirit Cultivation

Whereas Yasumoto Sensei uses 揚心館 which translates roughly as Hall of the Willow Heart/Spirit.

Motoha Yoshin Ryu is a branch of the Hontai Yoshin Ryu, Takagi Ryu, known for its association with the Willow Tree, hence the use of Yoshin in the name.

As with many other Japanese Martial Arts, we share some trappings with the art of Aikido, and under casual observation some of our techniques may look similar due to Aikido's Jujutsu heritage, however beyond any superficial similarities the principles and strategies applied in our school of Jujutsu are very different.
