September 16-19, 2015 Master Koretoshi Maruyama will be teaching an Aikido Yuishinkai Seminar in Honolulu.

Koretoshi Maruyama Sensei practiced other martial arts when he was young, but it was only through Morihei Ueshiba’s Aikido that he found his way. In 1967 he became an instructor in the founder’s dojo. In 1971, after Ueshiba’s death, he became head instructor in the Ki no Kenkyukai Aikido school, founded by Koichi Tohei.

Tohei promoted Maruyama Sensei to 8th dan and International Chief Instructor. Maruyama Sensei taught Aikido worldwide until 1991, when he retired to a zen monastery for a 10 years. After this period he founded Aikido Yuishinkai (Aikido without borders). In 2001 he left the monastery to return to his teaching activity.

All students of Aikido are welcome.
