Yoshinkan Aikido Ryu has a system whereby students can stay at the dojo and study aikido with Tsuneo Ando. Students stay at Ten Ryu Kan and take part in the everyday life of the dojo, training alongside Ando Senseiʼs apprentices. In this way, students can truly experience the saying that aiki soku seikatsu (“aikido and life are one”). Live-in training is for students who want to gain a greater understanding of the spirit of aikido and to improve their aikido technique.

Features and Facilities:

*Live-in students have the use of the dojo bicycles free of charge.
*Students have access to wireless internet (please note that the dojo computers are not available for use by students).
