about andrew sato shihan

Sato Sensei is a full-time aikido instructor and head of the Aikido World Alliance. He is the former chief instructor of the Aikido Association of America/Aikido Association International (AAA/AAI), and Tenshinkan dojo, headquarter dojo for the AAA.

Sato Sensei began his aikido
training in 1977 under Fumio Toyoda Shihan, first as a member of the Ki Aikido Society, then as a member of the AAA/AAI. During his tenure as chief instructor for the AAA/AAI, he traveled extensively throughout Europe and the United States passing on the methodology and teachings of Toyoda Shihan. In 2005, Sato Sensei parted ways with the AAA/AAI. To further develop his own understanding of aikido and to support others who asked him to continue teaching, Sato Sensei and a
small group of dedicated dojos created the Aikido World Alliance (AWA), headquartered in Chicago at Kiku Matsu dojo. In 2012, the AWA was affiliated with the Aikikai Foundation, Aikido World Headquarters.
