Arun Aikido Club at the
Bognor Regis Carnival 2017

We would like to thank students and families who supported the Arun Aikido Club on our carnival walk on Saturday 10th June 2017. It was a glorious sunny day, and we handed out leaflets to 100's of people... it was great to see so many smiling faces. We look forward to welcoming new students to our aikido classes :)


We Spotlight Aikido Master Nobuyoshi Tamura Sensei


Nobuyoshi Tamura (1933-2010) was an 8th dan Aikikai Shihan and a direct student of Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei.

His father was a kendo teacher, and he began training at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo in 1953 as an uchi-deshi (live-in student) of Morihei Ueshiba.

He was one of O'Sensei's favorite pupils and often used as an uke to receive techniques. He married Rumiko and they had three sons.

He knew macrobiotic founder George Osawa, and later after moving to France, he became friends with zen master Taisen Deshimaru, whom Osawa considered to be his successor.

Nobuyoshi Tamura was sent to France by Morihei Ueshiba in 1964.

He took over from Tadashi Abe as the Aikikai representative and decided to remain there. Aikido teachers in France included Minoru Mochizuki, Masamichi Noro, Mutsuro Nakazono.

Morihei Ueshiba developed Aikido from his combat studies of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu with Sokaku Takeda, and his spiritual studies with Onisaburi Deguchi and the Omoto Kyo.

Master Nobuyoshi Tamura Contributed to Aikido In Europe


Since 1964 Nobuyoshi Tamura greatly contributed to the development of aikido all over Europe and particularly France. He was the National Technical Director of the FFAB (French Federation of Aikido and Budo).

Throughout his teaching career he trained many instructors in various countries, but mostly Western Europe. In 1999, he received a prestigious medal from the French government in recognition of his work.

The French Aikido Federation split in the 1980's. Students who decided to stay loyal to Tamura created an independent aikido federation, while others remained under the Judo federation, which later became independent under the leadership of Christian Tissier.

Tamura was an honorary citizen of the town of Lesneven, France, where every year he gave week long summer seminars with fellow aikido sensei Yoshimitsu Yamada. He also conducted several other summer seminars.

He published several books on aikido in French, and among his former students were Toshiro Suga and Pierre Chassang.

He died of cancer in July 2010, and will be greatly missed. More Info Here
