Nariyama Shihan 成山師範 (9th Dan) is a head of Shodokan Aikido 昭道館.
Shodokan Aikido is one of the major branches of modern Aikido, first developed by Kenji Tomiki, a direct student of Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido, and Jigoro Kano, the founder of Judo. Often in parts of the world Shodokan Aikido is referred to as Sport Aikido or Tomiki Aikido after the name of its founder. However Tomiki Sensei preferred his system to be know as Shodokan.Aikido clubs who follow the teaching of Kenji Tomiki.
He founded our system of Aikido by creating a way for his students to test their skills against each other using randori or ‘free practice’ so that they could keep the techniques ‘real’ and effective.
