A Yoshinkan Aikido and Ryu historical treasure unearthed!

Sometimes treasure turns up unexpectedly! So it is with this precious video taken on the 15th of April, 1990: Shioda Gozo Sensei visits Horie Budokan and does a demonstration in support of his apprentice Tsuneo Ando’s newly-started group in Urayasu. Later that group, under the leadership of Ando Sensei, would grow into Yoshinkan Aikido Ryu with affiliated dojos across Japan and around the world. Part 2 features demonstrations by then 5th dan Ando Sensei and by Shioda Sensei himself.
