Aikido Photos of Shoji Nishio Sensei
Photo & Video: Ulf Lundquist
Shoji Nishio sensei (1927-2005) visited Sweden regularly, from the early 1980's. In the 1990's he held annual seminars in our dojo Enighet, Malmö, inspiring and bewildering us with his brilliant aikido and sword art. A great budoka has left us, but will not be forgotten.
Here are some photos and videos by our member Ulf Lundqust, mainly from seminars at Enighet.
The five videos below are from a 1993 Nishio sensei seminar in our dojo Enighet.
