At the encouragement of Inoue Sensei, Roppongi Yoshinkan Aikido was established in August 2001. RYA is registered with the All Japan Yoshinkai Aikido Foundation and operates as a non-profit organization.
The aim of RYA is to foster the teaching and development of Aikido. All instructors are certified with the Yoshinkai Aikido Foundation and have received intensive training at the Yoshinkan Aikido World Headquarters dojo in Tokyo.
The dojo is located just off Roppongi Crossing meters from the main Roppongi Hibiya and Oedo line exits. It is a 10 minute walk from Nogizaka station.
The name of the facility is Bodyplant Roppongi. It is on the 3rd floor of the Trinity Building. There is a Tengu izakaya in the basement of the building and it is a few doors down toward the crossing from the MOS burger.

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.
