To preserve and disseminate the traditional values, concepts and principles of Budo in the modern world.
Aikido is a dynamic, effective and traditional Japanese martial art that utilises locks and throws to control an attacker.
The Shudokan, founded in 1980, has a proud history as the first Yoshinkan style Aikido dojo in Australia and is headed by Joe Thambu Shihan (8th Dan), who is world renowned for his Aikido and teaching prowess.
Dating back to the days of Shioda Gozo Soke, the founder of Yoshinkan Aikido, Inoue Kyoichi Hanshi, one of his uchi deshi, as well as Thamby Rajah Sensei, also known as the father of Aikido in Malaysia, Aikido Shudokan International has a rich history in modern Budo. It now spans several generations and across multiple countries worldwide.
