techniques. It emphasises practical efficiency and is the style used to train
women and anti-riot teams of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. There are no
tournaments and it is not classed as a sport.
Size, weight, age and physical strength play only a small role in Aikido, also making it a uniquely suited option for women, children and older students. The Aikido Shudokan Indonesia runs specialised children’s classes, and has a mix of male and female students and instructors.
The Aikido Shudokan Indonesia has a clear lineage in the tradition of Aikido. Mark Hadiarja Sensei was first studied Yoshinkan Aikido in Melbourne, Australia in 1997 during his University studies at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. This is where he met Joe Thambu Shihan. Thambu Shihan first studied Yoshinkan Aikido in Malaysia in 1972 (aged 11) under his uncle Sensei Thamby Rajah, who was himself a student of Gozo Shioda - the founder of Yoshinkan Aikido and an outstanding pre-WWII student of Aikido’s founder Morihei Ueshiba. Shioda gave the name ‘Shudokan’, ‘Shu’ meaning to study, ‘do’ meaning the way and ‘kan’ meaning house. Shihan Joe Thambu was the last person to be tested by Shioda before his passing in 1994.
In 2001, Aikido Shudokan Indonesia was established witht the approval of Kyoichi Inoue Kancho and Joe Thambu Shihan.

Modern day Aikido can trace its origins back to the feudal society of 9 th century Japan .The Aiki system of techniques is said to have originated with Prince Teijun, the sixth son of the Emperor Seiwa (850-880) and was passed on to subsequent generations of the Minamoto family. Over the following generations, the techniques were eventually handed down to Shinra Saburo Yoshimitsu, the younger brother of Yishiie Minamoto. Yoshimitsu was a man of exceptional talent and skill. It is said Yoshimitsu devised many of his techniques by watching a spider skillfully trap a large insect in its fragile web. His house, the Daito Mansion , has given its name to his system of Aikijutsu, which became known as Daito Ryu Aikijutsu The Daito Ryu techniques were handed down in secret to family members and retainers, eventually reaching Sokaku Takeda (1859-1943), who was to later play major role in the foundation of modern day Aikido. The Daito Ryu system that was handed down to Sokaku Takeda was undoubtably different from that which was taught a thousand years before. The specific arts studied by Takeda are unknown except for his training in Ono-ha Itto-ryu kenjutsu. All evidence points to the conclusion that the Daito-Ryu arts Takeda taught are as much a synthesis of his vast training experience and technical innovation as they are a faithful continuation of the Aizu clan martial tradition. One of Takeda's students was Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido. Born December 14, 1882 Ueshiba met Takeda in 1915, after attending a ten day seminar conducted by Takeda. So impressed was he by Takeda's techniques, Ueshiba immediately began a study of Daito Ryu. In addition, Ueshiba also studied Kito Ryu Jujitsu, Yagyu Shinkage Ryu... Read More
