Misogikan Dojo is a member of Renshinkai Aikido.

Renshinkai Aikido is under the auspices of 8th-dan Tsutomu Chida-Shihan, a top uchideshi of the late founder of Yoshinkan Aikido, Gozo Shioda-Sensei. Chida-Shihan is working hard to guide the next generation of leaders and teachers by instilling in them the techniques and spirit that he inherited from Gozo Shioda-Sensei.

Chida-Shihan was an uchideshi of Gozo Shioda-Sensei from 1971 and has had the longest career at the Yoshinkan Aikido Honbu. Even after the passing of Gozo Shioda-Sensei in 1994, Chida-Shihan continued his support for 13 years until December of 2007 when he retired from the Yoshinkan Honbu. Later in April of 2008, it came about that he decided to move on from the Yoshinkan organization and established the Renshinkai.

Chida Tsutomu Sensei

His demonstrations and clinics are much sought-after and have been flourishing throughout Japan and the world. It has been his calling to pass on accurately to the next generation the Aikido that he received from Gozo Shioda-Sensei; accordingly he continues to contribute to the expansion of Aikido.
