Shodokan Aikido (昭道館合気道 Shōdōkan Aikidō) is sometimes referred to as "Sport Aikido" because it includes competition.
"Shodokan" was founded and named by Kenji Tomiki (富木 謙治 1900–1979), who systemised Aikido training into basic practices.
Shodokan Aikido UK is part of an international community of people training, and competing, with each other around the world.
Competition Aikido is unique to Shodokan Aikido, and is an effective way to improve skills and test technique, and to have fun.
Tetsuro Nariyama (成山 哲郎) is the World Technical Director of Shodokan Aikido. He runs the Shodokan Hombu Dojo In Osaka, Japan.
