Aikido Yuishinkai International Instructors

Dear Aikido Yuishinkai national Chief Instructors and dojo Head Instructors,

I’m deeply grateful for your daily efforts to help Aikido Yuishinkai to transmit the techniques and spirit of true aikido as handed down directly by Morihei Ueshiba sensei.

I would like to take this opportunity to name Australia’s Peter Kelly and The Netherlands’ Martijn van Hemmen as Aikido Yuishinkai International Instructors, effective as of 1 February, 2016. Please do not hesitate to invite either of them to teach in your country. Both of them have received instruction from me for many years and I guarantee that they have the ability to transmit the techniques and spirit of true aikido. That is to say that learning from them is equivalent to learning from me. You may contact either of them directly, and there is no need to ask me for permission.

I will also be available to teach internationally if circumstances allow it.

Koretoshi Maruyama
Founder of Aikido Yuishinkai
