Judo / Aikido Seminar (August 11-13, 2017) – Mr. Tadayuki Satoh is one of the world’s leading Japan Aikido Association experts. He was taught directly by Tomiki Kenji Sensei, founder of the Japan Aikido Association, in the living room of his house every Sunday before tea, and so he has an in-depth knowledge of Tomiki Sensei’s Aikido system.  Kano urged Satoh’s father to send him to train in Aikido because judo was meant to be more than just competition. Sato Sensei, was granted the position of Shihan of Waseda University Aikido club in 2007. This position had been vacant since Professor Tomiki’s death in 1979.  He is also an accomplished judoka. His father was received his 8th Dan in Kodokan Judo and was a student of Jigoro Kano. Satoh Sensei is an expert in the link between Kodokan Judo and Tomiki-style Aikido and also teaches Aikido at the Japan Police University.
