Shindai Aikikai Aikido Dojo

Shindai  is a member dojo of the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (ASU)

Mitsugi Saotome Shihan

Shindai was founded by the late Dennis Hooker Sensei (ASU Shihan) 1947-2014

We are saddened to announce the passing of Dr.David Jones Sensei. For more than a quarter century, Doc Jones Sensei helped lead the Aikidoka of Shindai on a path of self awareness and martial viability. Although his influence will continue to resonate in the dojo for as long as it exists we a heartbroken at his departure.

We choose to believe that Doc and Dennis are sitting on some celestial porch playing music, the guitar challenging the banjo to a higher level of credibility.
