Aikido Yuishinkai was founded by Master Koretoshi Maruyama to promote universal values and principles of peace throughout the world. Students from all styles of aikido are welcome to train with us as we are non-partisan in our approach. Friendship with other dojo is encouraged in keeping with the harmonious spirit of Aikido. Aikido Yuishinkai is truly 'Aikido without boundaries'.

Maruyama Sensei is widely admired and respected as a teacher who has dedicated his life to communicating the benefits of 'positive mind' through Aikido training. He has inspired many thousands of people throughout the world over many years.

Vision Statement

This Vision Statement represents the shared aspirations of individual members of Aikido Yuishinkai International. As an organisation we endeavour to promote the vision of Master Morihei Ueshiba, the Founder of Aikido and Master Koretoshi Maruyama, the Founder of Aikido Yuishinkai International.

A vision begins with intuition and dreaming, a cohesive image of an ideal to strive for. Ueshiba Sensei's vision resulted in the creation of Aikido as a path to universal harmony and world peace. It is hoped that the maxim of 'Aikido without Boundaries' will promote greater unity and strength among all aikidoka, thus encouraging Ueshiba Sensei's dream to be realised.

'Every river has a name. However, these names disappear when they flow into the great ocean. Aikido has many styles, many names, but Aikido is Aikido. It is my vision and hope that, like the rivers , they flow together and unite as one.'
