Yoshinkan Aikido is the style that we teach at Millennium Martial Art. This is the style taught by Gozo Shioda, who was an outstanding student of Aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba. Gozo Shioda taught the spiritual and practical applications of Aikido to thousands of people in his lifetime.
The principle of Aikido in Gozo Shioda's words:
"As you get older, your muscles weaken, and you can no longer lift and pull. Unlimited strength comes from breath power. If the other person comes powerfully against you, and you respond by simply taking his power into yourself, there is no need for any effort"
Aikido is not a system of combat, but rather a means of self improvement. Aikido has no tournaments, competitions,contests, or "sparring".
All Aikido techniques are learned cooperatively. The
goal of Aikido is not to defeat others, but the defeat of the negative
characteristics which inhibit one's own mind and its functioning.
is a self defense art. The main reason competition in Aikido is not
allowed is that many Aikido techniques would have to be excluded because
of their potential to cause serious injury. By training cooperatively,
even the lethal techniques can be practiced without injury.
At Millennium Martial Arts we integrate Weapons training
with the basics or advanced aikido techniques. The three principle
weapons used in Aikido are Jo (4 ft wooden staff), Bokken (wooden sword)
and Tanto (wooden knife).

Yoshinkan Aikido is a unique martial art in that
it can trace its lineage directly back to that pre-war period of the
Jigoku Dojo (Hell Dojo), and at the same time be recognized as an Aikido
style in its own right.
The secret of training is simple - more training!
In order to feel the energy of these aikido
techniques, is not enough that the aikido moves are copied and repeated.
Joy, energy, sheer power and never ending enthusiasm is needed to make
Aikido special. Training in Aikido gives the student a chance to develop
and extend their personal and professional skills.
Yoshinkan Aikido has become well-known throughout the world, and people of many
nationalities are training. "Every year, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police
sends ten of its members (each one at least third dan in kendo or judo)
to spend one year as "Special Students" in the Yoshinkan Headquarters
Dojo in Tokyo".
