MSMAS Aikido hosts Dr Hiroaki Izumi Sensei at our Honbu Dojo ......

Izumi Sensei's Aikido experience stretches back over 30 years ....


A good weekend was had by all as MSMAS hosted Izumi Sensei GoDan (5th Dan Aikido) under Kawahara Shihan and Shidoin for Kawahara Yukio Shihan (Canadian Aikido Federation) since 1995.

His other posts have included:
Fuku Shidoin for Cottier Ken Shihan (Hong Kong Aikido Federation) 1990 - 1995
Fuku Shidoin for Tohei Akira Shihan (Midwest Aikido Federation - USAF) 1987 - 1990
Shihan Dai of West Indies Aikido Federation (Barbados, Jamaica, St. Lucia).

Creator of the ‘Aikido Control Tactics System’ for Policing, Security, & Military, Use of Force Policy Development and Review Analyst & CQB instructor - firearm retention and ‘Physical Principles of Aikido’ DVD series, plus past Defensive Tactics Instructor for:

Royal St. Lucia Police
Saskatchewan Highway Traffic Enforcement
Canadian Department of National Defense 15 Wing
Royal Hong Kong Police
Texas Corrections and Law Enforcement Officers School

An experienced Kendoka, with some 28 years experience, holding SanDan (3rd Dan) under Miyaoka Ken Sensei he was able to practice with MSMAS in company with our own Kendo YuDansha Shuichi Terashima Sensei (YonDan).

He also enjoyed some Keiko with our other Kendoka.

The Aikido Session then began with Izumi Session and all present then went on to enjoy a most memorable day !

This was without doubt, as expected, a most interesting Session plus a 'one off' opportunity to train with Izumi Sensei as he passed through the UK en route to Kuwait where he will teach: International Business, Engineering Management, Disciplined Services Management, Organisational Behaviour, and Organisational Theory & Strategic Human Resources Management as Associate Professor of Business Management at the Gulf University for Science and Technology.

Thank you Sensei for your time and teaching ...
