Osu!

We are officially open for business! Having just conducted our first classes in our new dojo last night, we are working hard to get the new space up to standard (bar some minor kinks and teething issues) as a training environment and home for our students in Singapore.

Nonetheless, Aikido Shudokan Singapore is now a fully-functional full-time dojo ready to take on more students in the name of spreading the art of yoshinkan aikido!

With the soft opening, we would like to announce the new training schedule as follows:-

Wednesday
6:30pm - 7:30pm - Kids
7:45pm - 8:45pm - Adults
9:00pm - 10:00pm - Individual Training

Saturday & Sunday
2:30pm - 3:30pm - Kids
3:45pm - 4:45pm - Adults
5:00pm - 6:00pm - Individual Training

If you're a martial artist or thinking of getting into martial arts, why not hit us up for a free no obligations trial class? See you on the mats. Osu!

The new training schedule and location of our dojo can be found here.

Highlights from Joe Thambu Shihan's June Seminar

Osu!

It was a privilege to have Joe Thambu Shihan (8th Dan) in Singapore over the last weekend for the Aiki Budo and Restraint & Removal Seminar. His seminar never fails to awe, humble and inspire us and there is no doubt that each and every one of our Shudokan attendees - whether from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia or Australia - gained valuable insights into our martial art.

Aikido Shudokan Singapore would like to express our utmost gratitude to Joe Thambu Shihan for sharing his knowledge and instilling the Shudokan spirit in us. We are proud to be training under the Shudokan flag and look forward to hosting Joe Shihan in Singapore again in the future.

Special thanks go to our fellow martial artists from Zhen Qi Shu Aikido and Hanmudo Association Singapore for joining us in this seminar, we hope to see you again!

Ramlan Ortega Sensei awarded 6th Dan

Osu!

Our Ramlan Ortega Sensei was awarded his rokudan (6th dan) today by his teacher Joe Thambu Shihan, a momentous occasion for the Shudokan schools of Singapore and Malaysia which he leads. In his presentation, Thambu Shihan expressed his thoughts on how past a certain level of seniority the emphasis is less of what the art does for you and more about what you do for the art - something which Ramlan Sensei has pursued with tireless dedication traversing both countries to establish and build our communities. It has been an honour sensei, congratulations!
