About Us

 

Training in St Bees, West Cumbria, UK

 

West Cumbria Aikido train  a traditional form of Aikido that was passed on from O-Sensei to the late Morihiro Saito Sensei. Morihiro Saito Sensei, 9th Dan, studied Aikido with the Founder in Iwama from 1946 until O-Sensei’s death in 1969. This was significantly longer than any other aikidoka. After the death of O-Sensei, Saito Sensei became the guardian of the Aiki Shrine and Chief Instructor of the Iwama Dojo. Saito Sensei saw it as his responsibility to faithfully transmit the art of the Founder. To do this he organised and classified the hundreds of techniques and devised methods and practices to aid the learning process. It is this system that we teach in West Cumbria Aikido.
