Welcome to Aikido Victoria, the representative of Aiki Kai Aikido in Melbourne and the state of Victoria. The National Aikido Association of Australia, Aiki Kai (Australia), was formed in 1965 under the direct authorisation of the Aikido founder, Ueshiba Morihei, also known as O-Sensei.
Our originator, Sugano Seiichi (8th Dan) was a direct student of O-Sensei. He was the head of Aiki-Kai in Australia, and was the Australian representative to the affiliated parent organisation, World Aikido Headquarters (Hombu), based in Japan. After his passing in 2010, his responsibilities now continue to be carried out by the Sugano Foundation.
Aikido Moral Code
Aikido is a Way
There is commitment and there is obligation
Do not abuse or misuse the art of Aikido
Study carefully, honestly and humbly
Respect your seniors
Take care of your juniors
Seiichi Sugano 8th Dan
