Hiroshi Isoyama Shihan
In 1949, Hiroshi Isoyama Shihan (grand master) was initiated into the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei, and has keeping practice for a long time. Nowadays he has '8-dan' (the 8th grade of the Aikido master) and gives lessons to a lot of people not only the inside of Japan but all over the world.
Toride Aikikai
Toride Aikikai is one of the Dojo (training group) of Aikido in Fujishiro town of Toride city, Ibaraki Japan. In 1973, our grand master Hiroshi Isoyama Shihan started lessons for few students of primary school in Fujishiro town. Toride Aikikai has developed for many years, and has a lot of chances to study under him.
Toride Aikikai is composed of three groups as below;
  • Aikido group for adults,
  • Lady's Aikido group for ladies,
  • Aikido Shounen-dan group for teens and preteens.
We are practicing and aiming at 'Jissen Aikido' which is helpful not only in the inside of the Dojo but also in everyday life. We held the 35th anniversary demonstration in 2008 and keep practicing still in Toride city.
