Fumio Toyoda Shihan

Fumio Toyoda Shihan, with his own background of training as uchideshi with the late Aikido Doshu, Kisshomaru Ueshiba, and from his three years of zen and misogi training at Ichikukai Dojo in Japan, has passed on a rich tradition of spiritual and physical discipline through his own instructional programs here in America.

Dynamic and powerful Aikido, a clear teaching methodology, and an emphasis on the integration of mental, spiritual, and physical training hallmark the instruction provided by Toyoda Shihan and the instructors he has trained. Here at Onshinkan Dojo, we strive to maintain this unique flavor of Aikido, and meet the high standards and teaching methodology originally set by Toyoda Shihan.

Our Director of Shugyo Cultural Center, Elisabeth Menning, started her training as Uchideshi (traditional live-in student) to Fumio Toyoda Shihan. This center was founded in his tradition and is dedicated to propagating his teachings.

In Memory of Shihan Fumio Toyoda
