Shodokan Aikido UK (SAUK) is an association of clubs that promote and teach the shodokan system of Tomiki Kenji.
The instructors within SAUK recognise the Osaka hombu dojo as the headquarters dojo and Nariyama sensei as the world technical director of shodokan aikido.
The close link that we have with Nariyama sensei and the hombu dojo is essential to the ethos of SAUK, since it guides our technical direction.
Many of the SAUK instructors have learnt shodokan aikido at the hombu dojo under Nariyama sensei.
The main objective of SAUK is to grow by producing new shodokan aikido black belts, who in turn can establish more clubs around the country.
We encourage people to read the SAUK Charter.
