Michio Shimada

Michio Shimada was born in 1952. Practiced judo and karate. In the early nineteen eighties he started with Taikiken  and is one of the second generation top Taikiken instructors who learned direct from master Kenichi Sawai himself.

Shimada sensei did run his own Taikiken dojo since 1985, but when master Kenichi Sawai died in 1988 he stopped teaching for about ten years.
From that moment he was training and teaching in Nishi Shinjuku Central Park and Yoyogi park for three times a week.
As he expressed it himself, he would like to train more, but he is a was busy man.
Shimada sensei has an powerful style of fighting and a strong one inch punch.
He is a friendly and passionate Taikiken teacher.

Shimada sensei has reopened a dojo in Tokyo where is sharing his experience and Sawai's teachings with his students.

Martial refining:

Concentrated effort to master feelings,
get rid of delusions,
remove acquired conditioning
and restore the original mind.
