UK » Cardiff » Shobukan


The Shobukan is home to Chief Instructor Peter Gillard (Shindoin, 6th dan), chairman of the British Aikido Federation, who has practiced Aikido for 45 years under the personal direction of Japanese Aikido Masters.

All Grades awarded are recorded with the Hombu Dojo, Aikikai World Headquarters, Japan.

Cardiff Shobukan welcomes new members to share in its practice and experience of Aikido and welcomes all visitors to our Dojos.

Cardiff Shobukan was founded in 1980 in order to follow the Aikido left to us by O'Sensei through the teaching of the present Doshu and the Hombu Dojo.

Since its early days Kanetsuka Shihan has been a frequent visitor of ours and along with naming the dojo he has guided our practice over the years.
