Aikido Yuishinkai was founded by Master Koretoshi Maruyama to promote universal values and principles of peace throughout the world. Students from all styles of aikido are welcome to train with us as we are non-partisan in our approach. Friendship with other dojos is encouraged in keeping with the harmonious spirit of Aikido. Aikido Yuishinkai is truly Aikido without boundaries.

Maruyama Sensei is widely admired and respected as a teacher who has dedicated his life to communicating the benefits of ‘positive mind' through Aikido training. He has inspired many thousands of people throughout the world over many years.

Vision Statement

This vision statement represents the shared aspirations of individual members of Aikido Yuishinkai International. As an organization, we endeavour to promote the vision of Master Morihei Ueshiba, the Founder of Aikido and Master Koretoshi Maruyama, the Founder of Aikido Yuishinkai International.

A vision begins with intuition and dreaming, a cohesive image of an ideal to strive for. Ueshiba Sensei's vision resulted in the creation of Aikido as a path to universal harmony and world peace. It is hoped that the maxim of 'Aikido without Boundaries' will promote greater unity and strength amongst all aikidoka, thus encouraging Ueshiba Sensei's dream to be realised.

Aikido Yuishinkai International is an organization formed to provide a network of support and resource information for Maruyama Sensei's teachings. Aikido Yuishinkai instructors strive to provide a safe, dynamic and supportive training environment based on tolerance, ethical values and universal principles to all who enter our dojos. Through Aikido practice and understanding the potency of developing a positive mind, Aikido Yuishinkai members make every effort to express this vision in word and deed.

Like ripples generated by a pebble tossed into a pond, it is sincerely hoped that through dedicated and interactive aikido training, this shared vision of Aikido Yuishinkai members will spread like ripples throughout our relationships and the greater community.

By the creative and peaceful resolution of conflict in our daily lives, we strive to foster greater harmony within ourselves, with others, the environment and the world.
