Annual Aikido Seminar, Bangkok
As every year, Mushin Ronin Nishio Ryu Aikido Dojo Bangkok organized their annual Seminar.
We were particularly proud, that every year a delegation of senior Sensei from Tokyo’s Hombu dojo are joining us at the Mushin Ronin Nishio Aikido dojo at the Racquet Club ( see map).
The Japanese delegation is led by Arisue Shihan and Nakamichi Sensei. Both holders of the 7th Dan in the traditional martial art of Aikido as well as other Japanese instructors from various other dojos in Tokyo.
During three days we hold multiple lessons of kumitachi (hand to hand techniques) as well as weapons (Iiado, Jo, Bokken and Tanto) demonstrations.
Every year we are welcoming visitors and people interested in learning the technique from all over the world.

What is Nishio-Ryu Aikido?
In Nishio Budo, you study precise footwork to understand irimi (entering) in such a way that you are always in a position of safety and you are also put into a position that is half a step ahead of your opponent. From this point through the finish of the technique you remain in a safe position while controlling the movement of your opponent. This concept has Nishio Sensei often reminding you of O’Sensei’s saying, “Victory is determined at the moment of contact.” Read more…
What is Aiki Toho Iai?
Aiki Toho Iaido is “Iaido using the sword methodology of harmony with energy”. Aiki Toho Iai is a series of kata founded by Shoji Nishio Sensei based directly on Aikido techniques, movements, and principles. When studying Iaido you gain a better understanding of Aikido and when studying Aikido you gain a better understanding of Iaido. Nishio Sensei often says that you cannot truly understand Aikido without studying the sword.
