Tendoryu Aikido – Energy in Motion
Aikido is a non-violent budo martial art full of harmony and elegance, which is based on a philosophy of cooperation. The Aikido Dojo Seishinkan in Hamburg is practicing Aikido of the Tendoryu-Style (“School of the Heavenly Way”), which was founded by the japanese master Kenji Shimizu after the death of O´Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido. It was master Shimizu who gave our traditional dojo in Hamburg-Eilbek the name “Seishinkan-Dojo” (“Room of the Pure Heart”). Head of the dojo is Eckhardt Hemkemeier, who holds the 5th Dan grade. He is a direct student of master Shimizu.
