Michael Stuempel

Sign up / Login to Showcase Central to see member profile I am a Canadian lucky enough to be following my hopes, dreams and aspirations while making my home and my life in Tokyo. I am a yondan in Yoshinkan Aikdio and a graduate of the International Yoshinkan Aikido Instructor's course. I am married with 2 children.

I came to Tokyo in 1993 to participate in the 1993-94 International Yoshinkan Aikido Instructor's course (The Senshusei Course) and stayed at the dojo in 1994-1995 to assist in the instruction of the next senshusei course. This was the year that Robert Twigger participated in the course which he then based his best selling novel "Angry White Pyjamas" on.

I became a part-time instructor at the Yoshinkan Honbu Dojo in 1995 and remained there until 1999.

In August 2001 Roland Thompson Sensei and I formed the Roppongi Yoshinkan Dojo and I am still there.

My life is simple. I enjoy my family. I enjoy my friends. I enjoy my work. I enjoy Aikido.

Please feel free to email us with any questions or thoughts that you might have. We also welcome beginners of all ages, shapes and sizes as well as people visiting from other dojos.
