About Ryuji Sensei

Shirakawa Ryuji Sensei was born in 1980. In 1995, at the age of 15, he commenced his Aikido training under his father Shirakawa Katsutoshi Shihan 7th Dan. Ryuji Sensei was attracted to aikido because he believed it had lifetime value as a budo for himself. Under the strict eye of his father he has developed and matured over the years. His father encouraged him to expand his experience by travelling to Germany to study under Asai Shihan. Ryuji Sensei was recently awarded his 6th Dan and the title of Shihan and continues to teach full time at two principal dojos in Sendai, Myagi Prefecture as well as in a number of satellite dojos in the surrounding countryside. Ryuji can be seen demonstrating his style on YouTube in many All-Japan Aikido Demonstrations as well as representing Japan at the World Combat Games. He is known for his flowing and clean aikido style as well as being an excellent instructor.

See you on the mat in October.
