Dento Iwama Ryu

Dento Iwama Ryu is the name give to the tradition of  Aikido transmitted by Saito Morihiro Sensei.

Saito Morihiro Sensei was a long time uchideshi (live in student) of O’Sensei Ueshiba Morihei at his dojo in Iwama, beginning in 1946 and staying with him through to his death. Saito Sensei was the student who spent most time directly studying with O’Sensei. After O’Sensei’s death Saito Sensei was made guardian of the Aiki shrine and continued to teach, and by teaching preserved the art exactly as it was taught to him by O’Sensei in Iwama.

Upon his death in 2002 Saito Sensei’s legacy, the perpetuation of correct transmission of the Aikido of O’Sensei, passed to his son Saito Hitohira Sensei. Hitohira Sensei continues to teach in Iwama and conducts seminars throughout the world. His organisation the Iwama Shinshin Aiki Shurenkai provides structure for the transmission of the art of Dento Iwama Ryu Aikido
