The Root of Aikido in Kyushu, Manseikan Aikido All history of Aikido in Kyushu has started from here...

The first time I met Aikido was in 1935 at the promotion meeting of martial arts (Budo Senyou Kai) in Kodo Omoto on Kameoka city, Kyoto prefecture, Japan. This is the martial art of God! Since then, this event had been burned into my brain. The autumn in 1953 when we had a massive flood on post-war Kumamoto city, I met a young martial artist. He was the grand master, the Manseikan Aikido founder, the 9th Dan rank of Kanshu Sunadomari (He was the 6th Dan rank and the instructor of Tokyo headquarters dojo at that time). Fortunately, I could make my intuitive wish that "Enroot Aikido in Kumamoto!" come true. In the next year, 1954 on new year's day, we placed the sign "Aikido Kumamoto Dojo" on the dojo in Ooe Kuhonji, Kumamoto city with cooperation of my seniors, acquaintances where friends and the religious ceremony for the opening of the Dojo was conducted. It was the dawn of the birth of Aikido in Kyushu area. Furthermore, the Dojos were opened in Fukuoka prefecture, Kagoshima prefecture, Nagasaki prefecture and Miyazaki prefecture …. and thousands of trainees are learning Aikido.
