Shodokan Aikido is a structured martial arts system incorporating physical education, sport and self defence. We are part of an international network of Aikido clubs who follow the teaching of Professor Kenji Tomiki. His belief was that the old `arts of war` model practiced by the Samurai was inappropriate in modern times due to its emphasis on killing and maiming techniques, but a way had to be found to keep the techniques `real` and effective. He found this by creating a way for his students to test their skills against each other using randori or `free practice`. This allows players to oppose each others techniques, defending and counter attacking at will.
