Highlights from Joe Thambu Shihan's June Seminar


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


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!
