Hiroshi Tada is one of the last remaining of the postwar generation of instructors developed at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Tokyo under the direction of Kisshomaru Ueshiba and Koichi Tohei. His aikido is based on a dynamic, continuous connection with his partner. Born in Tokyo, Tada was a member of the Waseda University karate club before starting training in aikido at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo under aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba in 1948. He was dispatched to Rome, Italy in 1964 where he established the Italian central dojo in 1966. He returned to Japan in 1973 to resume teaching at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo. To supplement aikido training, he has developed a system of breathing and meditative exercises called ki no renma (気の錬磨 “cultivation of ki”).

Free, Hiroshi Tada
