Takeshi Yamashima was born on 12 September 1941 in Kyoto. Already at the age of 18 he started his Aikido Way at the University of Kyoto under Arikawa Sensei and Yamada Sensei.
In the Tokyo Goverment Dojo , Yamashima Sensei also practiced under Mitsugi Saotome and has been able to expand his experience on a continual basis.
Early, he discovered the connection of the Shinkage Yagu Ryu and Aikido. Later, he followed Yamaguchi sensei until his death and discovered that there was a very great connection between what was practiced in the Shinkage Yagu Ryu and the Aikidio of Yamaguchi Sensei.
For many years, Yamashima Sensei is already traveling through Europe, Asia and the USA to teach students about his Aikido.
On this homepage we would like to publish information about his travels and seminars.
We hope for a lot of support from all students.
