Ryuji Shirakawa

Ryuji Shirakawa was born on 4th September 1980 and started aikido at 15 years. He lived in Kobayashi’s Dojo as an uchi-deshi, traveled to Germany to learn under Katsuaki Asai Sensei, lived in Calgary Aikikai, Canada as an uchi-deshi. But let’s make it fare right from the start…

Katsutoshi Shirakawa is a 7th Dan Aikido Aikikai Shihan and a Shinto priest. He is the one to inspire, teach and influence Ryuji right from the beginning until the very moment. Ryuji is taking ukemi for his father when it comes to Jo-Nage on a video above.

Ryuji is now holding a 6th Dan Aikido Aikikai and a status of Shihan. He is a Dojo-cho (head) and an instructor of Aikido ShinbuRenseiJyuku with over 400 students in Sendai, Japan.

Ryuji Shirakawa is known for his flowing, dynamic, innovative and clean aikido style. This is why he is giving a lot of seminars around the world. Russia, France, Greece, Canada, Hungary are regular countries he goes to. The more you watch him the more you like what he does.

Be sure to follow the Shinburenseijyuku Youtube channel with a lot of good aikido and a Shirakawa Ryuji Sensei Fan Site Facebook page which is updated regularly.


  1. Dear Sensei,
    The reason to write you is a suggestion. The suggestion is to create Aikido App for self training of Aikido with smartphones. The self training Aikido app will be programmed from Sensei and the trainee will keep the smartphone in the hand and will follow the vibration traectory of the smartphone. That is the suggestion and I hope you can explore and develop it.

  2. The family tree is 10 and children are his branches. Aikido 10 is a man and a woman who are sensei with the children.

  6. Sensei.

    I began Aikido-teaching with my daughter Faith, at age three. Now my experience is limited, of course.

    Please see and visit us, as follows: Faith’s Family on you tube at your personal leisure and enjoyment.

    No attacking just the way of harmony of the Spirit. A child deserving little more.

    Our “Jos” are handmade from Elder, not White Oak. This is very-light and strong. Not used in a(ny) video. I collect from the woods when part of the tree dies, yet before it rots. Naturally hardened by the forces of nature to do no harm.

    If anybody reads this please respond, kindly, and watch our family aikido. My Sensei died. I fulfilled his instructions in life. A request, for ‘any replies’.

  7. Enough of those comments. Ai[…]

    Good day all.

  8. It is just interesting….
